We will discuss how memes are the most popular way to exercise our right to freedom of speech. During the session we will analyze how creating and sharing memes are legally protected by the freedom of speech laws in Latin American countries. We will highlight some bill projects that might ban and criminalize the memes on the Internet and how this will affect the freedom of expression in these countries and could be a new way of governmental censorship, especially in countries some with a critical political context.

This is a Learning Forum session.
