On the morning of January 13, it was reported that,Amazon recently urged judges not to order the company to resume its online hosting service for Parler, citing the conservative social media platform's failure to regulate violent content before and after the Capitol riots.Last week, Amazon's Web Service (AWS) suspended its services to President Trump's supporters after they used Parler to organize riots in the Capitol. After that, Parler filed a lawsuit and asked a federal judge in Seattle to order that AWS immediately resume the network hosting service.
In its antitrust lawsuit against Amazon, Parler said the killing of its social network would pose a threat to the company's survival. Parler used to call himselfTwitterAlternative products.
Amazon refutes this.
"It will be unprecedented to force AWS to host content that plots, encourages and incites violence," Amazon said in court documents AWS said it had communicated with Parler in November about concerns about information such as inciting violence on the social media platform. AWS also said it still found "problematic content" on the platform after alerting to the January 6 incident. According to AWS, although parrer gave a reply, the measures mentioned in parrer's reply were almost entirely "dependent on volunteers.".
AWS also said in court documents that it only suspended and did not terminate Parler's account, explaining that the two companies' agreement required Parler to ensure that content on its platform would not violate AWS policies or laws. "It was Parler who broke the agreement because the content on its platform promoted violence and the platform failed to delete it in time." AWS wrote in the document.
AWS is the largest cloud computing service provider so far, and its on-demand software service is the foundation of many popular Internet services.
Parler said in the lawsuit that it "has no other choice" in the case of web hosting services. The company also said AWS's actions reduced competition in the social media space.
