What is the IMMI and how is it protecting our customers?
• Whistleblower protections:Protection for those who step forward to reveal important matters in the public interest.
• Source protection:Protection for anonymous sources who attempt to communicate to the public after a promise of confidentiality by a journalist or media organisation. Based on new EEA legislation.
• Source-journalist communications protection:Protection for the communications between an anonymous source and a media organization and internally within a media organization prior to publication.
• Limiting prior restraint:Prior restraint is coercion of a publisher, by a government authority, or through the judicial system, to prevent publication of a specific matter. While the Icelandic Constitution provides the right to freedom of expression, small modifications are needed to reduce the possibility of prior restraint.
• Protection of intermediaries (Internet service providers):Immunity for "mere conduits", ISPs and telecommunications carriers.
• Protection from "libel tourism" and other extrajudicial abuses:Non-observance of foreign judgments that violate Icelandic freedom of expression protection, and the ability to file a counter-suit in Iceland against a party who engages in a calculated attempt to suppress the speech freedoms of an Icelandic entity.
• Statute of limitations on publishing liabilities:Recent rulings in Europe maintain that for Internet publications, each page view is publication afresh, regardless of how long ago the material was first released. This has resulted in the silent removal of investigative newspaper stories, including those over five years old, from the online archives of the Guardian and other major newspapers.
• Process protections:The majority of legal suits related to publishing settle before final judgment. Hence the court process itself must ensure that it is not used to suppress speech through unequal access to justice, subpoenas, or other interlocutory motions. Process protections (called anti-SLAPP laws in the US) permit a judge to declare the matter a free speech related case, at which point protections are activated to prevent such abuses.
