France gives social media sites one hour to delete some illicit content

France has mandated social networks and other online content providers to remove pedophile and terrorism-related content from their platforms within the hour or face a fine. For other ’manifestly illicit’ content, companies will have 24 hours to remove it. The Justice Minister said the law will help reduce online hate speech. Companies face a fine of up to 4% of their global revenue.
