The Guardian: Tech platforms face UK ban on blocking news providers before appeal

The Guardian: Tech platforms face UK ban on blocking news providers before appeal. “A change to the online safety bill means that articles in breach of a service’s terms and conditions cannot be removed or hidden until the publisher has been notified and has received the verdict of any appeal to the platform. The amendment to the legislation is intended to avoid a repeat of an incident last year when YouTube suddenly banned the digital station TalkRadio from its platform for violating its content guidelines. It was reinstated 12 hours later.”
