Panel Discussion


How law suits can force Big Tech to become Fair Tech

3 November 2023
19:00 — 20:15

Location: Het Huis Main Stage

Is legal action – lawsuits, mass claims, etc – a potential strategy for digital citizens wanting to resist loss of agency and infringements of their digital rights? This panel invites experts to discuss how legal action can change existing laws and assist in establishing regulations on issues of online privacy, data-extraction and other ways in which Big Tech companies profit from their users. The discussion will also touch on ways governments could enforce existing legislation or develop rules to protect digital users. This panel will report on real legal actions taken against Big Tech, to show us how we might take legal routes to make Big Tech companies abide by the law and account for their actions.
