Earlier 2017 Germany and the EU approved a new bill that lets them impose fines reaching €50M for failure to remove online hate crime, fake news, extremist content fast enough.

Germany's Cabinet has approved a new bill on curbing hate comments and fake news on social media.
Chancellor Angela Merkel's Cabinet on Wednesday agreed on rules that would impose fines of up to 50 million euros (53.4 million dollars) on social networking sites that fail to swiftly remove illegal content, such as hate speech or defamatory "fake news."

German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said that companies offering such online platforms are responsible for removing hateful content.
