Germany is cracking down on social media sites that don't take down hate speech.
German Parliament passed a law allowing the government to fine companies over $5.7 million if they don't remove "obviously" criminal content within 24 hours.
Several outlets have reported that, depending on the content and company response, fines can be increased to over $57 million.
Germany has been moving toward measures like this for a while. Last year, authorities there conducted a nationwide raid on people suspected of disseminating hateful and criminal content online.
It's not just Germany. France and the U.K. want to impose legal liability on sites they say create a "safe space" for extremist content.
Critics of Germany's legislation argue the time restrictions are impractical and that removing content could impede freedom of expression.
But Heiko Maas, a federal minister in Germany, disputed that and told the German Parliament "freedom of expression ends where criminal law begins."
