Reuters revealed that Amazon.com Inc plans to take a more proactive approach to determine what types of content violate its cloud service policies, such as rules against promoting violence, and enforce its removal. According to a Reuters source, over the coming months, Amazon will expand the Trust & Safety team at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) division and hire a small group of people to develop expertise and work with outside researchers to monitor for future threats – a move that could turn Amazon into one of the world’s most powerful arbiters of content allowed on the internet and is likely to renew debate about how much power tech companies should have to restrict free speech.
