Faced with such an event, the FBI arrested a 21-year-old man accused of violating intellectual property law. Unfortunately, the accused will face three years in prison for infringing copyright.

The man named Trevon Maurice, 21, may not be released on bail. Although it has not been indicated how long Deadpool was on the defendant’s wall, official reports revealed that the film was seen millions of times. However, Facebook proved that it did not have enough algorithms to detect content with illegal use.

It is understandable that Facebook does not have control of all users, it is the most used social network worldwide, but we know that the platform has invested heavily in detecting violent, denigrating, pornographic, illegal, etc. Although freedom of expression is something that has always been fought, through the social network everything has been corrupted and distorted.

What is regrettable is that the only thing that happens on Facebook is a reflection of our current society, we can not blame the platform, because we must recognize that it has made a lot of efforts to combat any offensive publication.

Of course, not all of its algorithms are logical; There are things that should be censored and others that do not, but subjectivity will always come into play. There can never be final rules with which everyone agrees

Even the Mark Zuckerberg platform announced that it would hire 3,000 people so they could monitor live broadcasts and have more control over violent content. However, thousands and thousands of users have taken advantage of live broadcasts to stream movies to millions of people.
How does Facebook control the transmission of a movie?
