  8. 8. Is 2011 (Arab spring) a dividing line for online expression? Is there a domino effect between countries? If one country passes a law, does it encourage other countries to follow lead? Velocity? Is there a difference between origination and amplification? Is there a relationship between different applications of laws and the regional subdivision?

  11. 11. WHAT’S NEXT?
  12. 12. METHODOLOGY There is urgent need to code cases of online speech-related legal harassment, with the grounds and articles under which people are being prosecuted, so that they can be correlated with the laws and countries. What’s the criteria for including laws in the dataset? How can we best show the contradictions? SAFETY CONCERNS Warning: Share this Data At Your Own Risk
