How buying bots threatens the freedom to inform

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information February 22, 2018 – Updated on March 6, 2018 How buying bots threatens the freedom to inform PredatorsFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet More than 30 countries in the world would have put in place troll armies, according to the report of Freedom the Net from 2017. Predators of information benefit greatly from fake followers. A growing number of companies sell both human accounts as well as automated ones to those seeking to spread their message widely. Human accounts can be bought and paid to post opinions on social networks; when these comments are negative the users are called trolls. Automated accounts, also known as bots, specialize for example in automatically retweeting hashtags. These armies of fake accounts are used by press freedom predators to spread their propaganda widely and inexpensively on social networks, to launch cyber-attacks against media outlets, and to intimidate and harass journalists. Their methods include doxxing, in which personal information about journalists is obtained and used to discredit them, and double switch, in which their accounts are hacked, taken over, and used to spread fake information. Journalists are threatened and insulted, and their inboxes are bombarded with so many emails that they can no longer access them (this is known as email bombing). Trolling artificially amplifies the views of authoritarian regimes and their supporters, manipulating opinion in order to create the illusion of massive online grass-roots support (astroturfing) and thereby helping to legitimize whatever oppressive or authoritarian practices are afoot. Hounding a journalist costs next to nothing Fake followers are quickly becoming a weapon of mass censorship. In January, the New York Times ran a long investigative report about Devumi, one of the largest companies that sells fake accounts to public figures, including politicians, to enhance their visibility. Devumi’s clients have in the past included an editor at China’s state news agency Xinhua, who bought hundreds of thousands of followers and retweets on Twitter with the apparent aim of spreading Chinese propaganda, and an adviser to Ecuadorean President Lenín Moreno, who bought tens of thousands of followers and retweets during last year’s elections in Ecuador. Last November, journalists with the US non-profit media outlet ProPublica created two fake Twitter accounts and then tried to buy retweets from companies that sell fake followers. Some declined but others agreed. They included Devumi and a company called Followers and Likes. A fake pro-Russian account created by the journalists was able to buy 10,000 retweets for just 45 dollars and a fake English-language account was able to get 5,000 retweets for 28 dollars. Devumi and Followers and Likes are far from being the only companies to make money from organizations and personalities who want to inflate their follower count. A Google search for “buy followers” currently gets more than 61,100,000 hits. RSF is very concerned about this growth in organized and automated methods for silencing journalists all over the world, although it is not always easy to establish a direct link between these click subcontractors and the troll armies supported by the predators of online information. “The predators of press freedom artificially inflate the numbers of their supporters on social networks by means of trolls and use them to discredit what journalists say by drowning it in false content or comments,” said Elodie Vialle, the head of RSF’s Journalism and Technology Desk. “The companies that offer fake followers for sale must not become the accomplices of large-scale worldwide censorship. They must take care not to be added to the list of enemies of the Internet.” An army for each predator of information RSF has already voiced alarm about the proliferation of government-controlled troll armies that are used to silence online dissent, particularly independent journalists. These Internet content mercenaries include Russia’s “troll factories”, China’s “Little Pink”, Erdogan’s “AK trolls” in Turkey and Iran’s revolutionary cyber-guards for a Halal Internet. Abetted by those he calls his “yoddhas,” Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi undoubtedly takes advantage of the use social networks to intimidate journalists with the aim of imposing authoritarian policies. Modi also seems to use bots. By examining the list of his online followers, one can see that many of them are factitious, dormant profiles. Tools that detect fake Twitter accounts confirm this observation. According to the Twitter Audit website, more than 60% of Modi’s 40,000,000 Twitter followers are fake. These shocking figures are not just found within the Indian prime minister’s accounts. It is estimated that Facebook has more than 200 million fake accounts – a remarkable potential for predators of press freedom. Platforms have announced that they are going to combat fake accounts, but many trolls slip through the net. center_img More and more is being revealed about firms that sell fake followers and fake accounts on social networks that can be used, inter alia, to harass journalists or discredit their reporting by disseminating fake content. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) warns these companies that they are liable to become the new enemies of the Internet and the freedom to inform.

Iran deprives 55 million voters of freely reported news

first_img to go further March 18, 2021 Find out more News After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Organisation With the campaign for the Iranian presidential election officially under way since 28April, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the many obstacles – new and old – to freely reported news and information in Iran. IranMiddle East – North Africa WomenJudicial harassmentViolenceImprisonedFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet Follow the news on Iran Help by sharing this information The social media app Instagram’s live video feature (Instagram Live) has been blocked since 28 April. The feature was very popular in Iran and reformists had been making great use of it in recent weeks to circulate information in real time about the candidates and their campaign.Until now, Instagram had been monitored but not blocked in Iran. According to several sources, it was the judicial authorities that ordered the blocking that began last week.Prosecutor-general Mohammad Jafar Montazeri meanwhile announced on 23 April that the messaging service Telegram’s new voice-call option was being blocked in Iran because “the intelligence agencies cannot monitor it.” According to official figures, this very popular service has more than 15 million users in Iran.Although formally banned, Facebook and Twitter are currently playing an important role in disseminating news and information in Iran and most of the candidates have accounts.Since 16 March, Revolutionary Guards have arrested a dozen editors and managers of reformist news pages that use Telegram. They include Ali Ahmadinia, the manager of Eslahat News (“Reform News).The arrests have triggered a controversy pitting members of President Hassan Rouhani’s government against the conservative judicial system. Intelligence minister Mahmud Alavi criticized the arrests on 12 April. “Those in charge of these pages committed no crime,” he said.A week later, Golamhossien Mohsseni Ejehi, the judicial system’s spokesman, responded: “Some of them committed actions against national security and others have been accused of publishing immoral articles and images (…) The intelligence minister is himself accused in this case, so he cannot investigate or give his opinion on the subject.”The bitter feud being waged between the rival government factions during the election campaign shows a complete lack of consideration for freedom of information and the public’s right to be informed.RSF condemns the censorship imposed on all the media, which are unable to do their job of providing freely-reported coverage of the election and the crackdown on journalists. With 28 journalists and citizen journalists currently detained, Iran is one of the world’s five biggest prisons for the media.“The right to vote necessarily implies that voters also have the right to be freely informed in advance, which is not the case in Iran,” said Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran/Afghanistan desk.“What with journalists in prison, newspapers censored, news websites and social networks blocked, and critical opinion suppressed, it is impossible to speak of a democratic election process. The Islamic Republic must put an end to this unacceptable state of affairs, and it should start by freeing all the journalists.”One of the world’s biggest prisons for women journalistsThe many journalists arrested since 27 December include Tahereh Riahi, who covered social issues for the Borna News Agency; Zeniab Karimian, who hosted a programme on Iran’s third TV channel; Saleh Deldam, a young filmmaker; Henghameh Shahidi, a very well known journalist; Morad Saghafi, the editor of the magazine Goft o Gu (“Dialogue in Persian); and Ramin Karimian, a journalist and translator who worked with Saghafi and who was arrested on 14 March.The intelligence ministry has rightly criticized the arbitrary and illegal arrests of pro-government journalists by the Revolutionary Guards but it has unfortunately said nothing about the arrests by its own agents of the three women journalists among those mentioned above – Riahi, Karimian and Shahidi.They were all arrested quite recently. Other women journalists have been held much longer. They include Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, a citizen journalist held since 2013, and Narges Mohammadi, a well-known human rights defender and journalist who has completed an initial six-year jail sentence and recently began a second, ten-year one.Both are ill and both are being denied medical care in a country that is now one of the world’s biggest prisons for women journalists.Iran is ranked 165th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.Read the Handbook for Journalists during Elections, which contains practical advice on all aspects of news coverage during what is a very sensitive and important process in a nation’s life.

Hill’s son survived a usually fatal cardiac abnormality, Mahon escaped from the clutches of serial killer Ted Bundy, and Phillips’ sixth-month-old daughter was blinded from an abusive caregiver.

Airbnb May Bring Unforeseen Consequences to Borrowers

first_img Since Airbnb’s launch in 2008, the home-sharing service has grown to currently include more than 2 million listings in 191 countries. Because of this, some home builders are developing new plans with the home-sharing industry in mind but for lenders, Airbnb may bring more trouble than anticipated, according to a recent post from The Home Story presented by Fannie Mae.Dean Wehrli and Aaron Stubblefield, consultants with real estate firm John Burns Consulting, conducted an apartment feasibility study for a developer who considered setting aside space for Airbnb rentals. Fannie Mae reports that they found these units were likely to generate more revenue than those used for conventional long-term leases.“We sense a trend developing, especially if the apartment markets soften,” Wehrli and Stubblefield write. “Apartment developers — even those building large rental complexes — could set aside a portion of their units as a kind of Airbnb rental pool to maximize revenue and market flexibility.”Despite the seemingly obvious perks of this service, Airbnb could cause homebuyers potential problems as well. The largest of which comes in the form of violating the terms of the resident’s mortgage agreement. Fannie Mae says that this can be possible when using a property purchased as a residential dwelling for short-term rentals could violate your mortgage agreement. Additionally, if the lender decides regular use as a short-term rental could cause the property’s value to decline, the lender could call the loan due, meaning the owner would need to pay off the balance or lose the house.Because most conventional single family and condominium Fannie Mae compliant mortgages contain a regulation where the owner agrees that the mortgaged property will remain the borrower’s principal place of residence and not an investment property, homeowners who use Airbnb may unknowingly be violating their mortgage agreements. These homeowners find themselves converting the property into essentially a rental property and usually unbeknownst to the homeowner, investment property mortgages typically carry a higher interest rate and are sold in a different category in the secondary mortgage market.Fannie Mae says that this also holds true for a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. When an owner turns a home into a bed and breakfast, it increases the likely hood of new risks for both the homeowner and the insurance company underwriting those risks. For example, if there is an unfortunate accident involving an Airbnb guest, the insurance company could deny the claim due to converting the nature of the insured property into a rental property. Because demand has risen for Airbnb, many municipalities have sought to either regulate or limit short-term rentals within their borders.

One such invasion is where people’s intimate pictures and videos are recorded, uploaded and disseminated online without their consent. This is popularly called “revenge porn”. We’re all aware of a recent incident where a group of boys threatened to circulate intimate pictures of girls out of spite on a group chat called “bois locker room”. For an emerging digital and globalizing society digital exchange of intimate information is a medium though which we can understand new issues on internet governance. Maladies likes “revenge porn” or slut shaming, objectification are not unknown in the new internet age. For new internet laws to be made and enforced properly, we need to understand the context and complex reasons why they manifest in the ways they do.[i] Not only we do not have a specialized legislation or helplines like many countries worldwide do to address the problem, we do a great injustice to the victims of this cyber terrorism by calling this “revenge pornography”. The term fails to communicate the latitude and gravity of the harm. Feminist and media researchers have rejected the term for various reasons that we need to address.[ii] The term is victim blaming in nature that runs the risk of the public and the policy makers being misguided.[iii] Legal lacunae There is so specific law to address the issue yet. However, several sections of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 and the Information Technology Act, 2000 are available to convict the accused but do not cover the nuances of the malady completely.[iv] Also, other Acts such as Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition ) Act, 1986 also criminalizes publication of indecent photographs of women.[v] However, all these laws suffer from one very basic issue is their gendered nature. For example, section 354C of the IPC assumes that the offender is always male and the victim is always a female. IRWA has a similar problem. Section 67A of the IT Act is where it gets worse. As you might be aware, this section criminalizes individuals who publish and transmit electronic form of any material which is sexually explicit. The problem of using this to prosecute offenders of nonconsensual dissemination of intimate images and videos is that its ambit is wide enough to cover victims of such offences and prosecute them for transmitting the material. It’s specifically problematic for the victims who send this material voluntarily to their ex partners during the relationship. Moreover, the discourse on the subject must also include the wide array of harms and not just a vengeful ex-partner dynamic. Nonconsensual dissemination of images could also include instances where the victim and the perpetrator are strangers; or cases where perpetrators steal these images from the victims. Don’t call it “revenge” or “porn” Usage of the word ‘revenge’ suggests that there was an act on the part of the victim (originally harmful to the perpetrator) which warranted such behavior by the perpetrator. However, the offender may be driven by malevolence after a close relationship is over. In most cases it’s generally to restrict the victim from moving on from an intimate relationship. Or sometimes their motivation could be purely monetary; posting such images/videos online for money or extorting the victim for the same. Or sometimes it’s as simple as having a voyeuristic desire to expose another.[vi] As discussed in the previous section, the implications and the colors the offence can take is on a wide spectrum, and must not be treated only as being vengeful because a relationship ended. Some writers suggest that this specific offence is based on something called the “logic of outing”.[vii] It suggests that dissemination to information that is sensitive in a society that thrives on blaming victims of sexual offences, people gain psychological, economic and physical power by exposing them, making them feel guilty and disempower them. The point is that the content they are sharing with the world is very real; it involves a very real person who had previously consented to the act. So there’s no way it’s only the perpetrator’s fault. Therefore, for these instances in particular, victims are shamed and blamed for their own victimization. Moreover, some scholars also suggest that another pillar on which this crime thrives is romanticizing a woman’s non consent which is apparent from most hard core pornography available these days. Not just pornography, a non-consenting woman is fetishized even in mainstream movies and ads. Therefore, calling this revenge porn is over simplification of an act that robs people off their right to dignity, mental health and even sometimes livelihood. The term misses the central character of the issue- the abuser. Other than that, the term “porn” is private visual material with public content meant for mass consumption which gives a sense of victims being the consenting parties even to the extent of dissemination of the material. Pornography as such is an avenue where the lines of consensual content and otherwise are already blurry to the viewer. The term sensationalizes and makes for an attention grabbing headline and makes the victims even more reluctant than they already are to come forward and share their trauma. Reporting these sensitive incidents in a salacious manner only takes us a step backward in raising awareness against the menace.[viii] A minor change in vocabulary can make a huge difference in how we perceive this crime; and how victims perceive themselves. The impact on the victim is understated Right from jeopardized relationships with family and friends, victims also suffer a major difficulty in their professional advancement. It exposes them to a major risk of being stalked and teased by those who have seen their images online. If not this, victims live in a fear of losing their current partner and social boycott and in some cases they have also reported being stressed over their children’s future in these circumstances. Most of them close their social media accounts and some have even gone to the extent of changing their names. Not only this, more than half of the victims of non-consensual dissemination of intimate material online have reported to have suicidal thoughts, leading to major mental health problems.[ix] Countries like United Kingdom, for instance, introduced a helpline specifically for victims to report such offences. The Helpline was established in 2015 alongside the law which made it an offence to share intimate images/videos of someone, either on or offline, without their consent with the purpose of causing anguish. These initiatives are important since they provide the victim a safe space to talk about their issues and seek advice first, rather than simply reporting it to the police officials at the first instance who are often not trained to deal with sensitive matters like intimate image abuse. This is not to say that the enforcement of the special law in the UK is without its pitfalls. But it is nevertheless an important insight into what we’re not even discussing in India. While dealing with intimate image abuse, a highly empathetic approach is required to encourage victims to actually lodge complaints in the matter. Not only do we need a specific law targeting the problem, we also need trained police men and women to approach the problem with utmost empathy and seriousness.

Its most recent investment has been to KeyNest, a start-up set on eliminating the hassle caused by collecting and depositing keys.KeyNest, says LiFE Ventures, solves the pain point of time-wasting and insecure key handovers between different user groups such as host and guest, agent and tenant or contractor, busy residents, and cleaners. Keys can be dropped in partner locations, then securely picked up by with a single-use code.KeyNest launched in June 2016 with 10 partner locations in London and already has over 100 locations across the country. “KeyNest has already proven its huge value-add to serviced apartment operators. We are investing because key management and key exchanges sometimes can be challenging for estate agents – something KeyNest can finally solve. We are confident that lost keys and expensive key exchange processes will be a thing of the past thanks to KeyNest,” said Jonathan Werth, MD at LiFE Residential.http://lifeventures.tech/https://www.keynest.com key management Keynest start-ups technical key management October 31, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
