This talk focuses on regulatory strategies towards disinformation in order to demonstrate the importance of policies that do not encompass speech regulation (such as criminalisation of individual expression and enhancement of libel and defamation sanctions). It focuses on the Brazilian experience, where policy proposals have recently shifted from a speech-based approach to a range of mechanisms mostly based on transparency, accountability and user authentication.
