Facebook Takedowns

I was on Global News (Canadian national tv newscast); interviewed about the recent Facebook take-downs of member pages. You can watch the segment here. Here is an update of the news story...

Interesting Internet legal issue for me considering my recent experience with moderation, as per my below posts.

This is the big issue: Facebook has 300 million members in its "community". Likewise, millions of people are members of other "communities". In tradtional, bricks and mortar communities, governments are supposed to protect member's rights in the "community"; at least in democracies. Has the time come for online communities to employ a "Charter of Rights" for members?
