Tech Trends 2021

Predictions for US content moderation and privacy reform with Daniel Silver

12 February 2021

Tech Group partner Daniel Silver outlines his predictions for Tech regulation in the US under the new Biden administration in this video from our 2021 Tech Predictions series, highlighting a likely movement this year on two big issues of content moderation and privacy reform.

Dan says we're likely to see legislative action this year requiring social media platforms to take a neutral stance in relation to content generated by their users, particularly around political issues. This will bring them in line with rules followed by traditional broadcast media and telco companies for decades.

On privacy reform, Dan predicts the development of a new privacy law in 2021 which will include the right for individual consumers to sue over the misuse of their personal data.
