Zoom shut down a series of events meant to discuss what organizers called “censorship” by the company.
Zoom told the Verge at the time that the Sept. 23 talk was in violation of the company’s terms of service.
“Zoom is committed to supporting the open exchange of ideas and conversations and does not have any policy preventing users from criticizing Zoom,” a spokesperson for the company said.
“Zoom does not monitor events and will only take action if we receive reports about possible violations of our Terms of Service, Acceptable Use Policy, and Community Standards.
However, Zoom did not respond to questions about which specific policy was violated or whether other events have been shut down by the company.
Adam Saeed, a student at University of Leeds, said he used his personal Zoom account to organize the event.
Cynthia Franklin, a professor at the University of Hawaii, also saw an event she organized deleted by Zoom, but was unable to find an alternative platform. »
