Section 230 And Immunity Of Social Media Providers: Its Origin And Purpose, Caselaw Interpreting It, And Its Repeal Or Revision

Section 230 And Immunity Of Social Media Providers: Its Origin And Purpose, Caselaw Interpreting It, And Its Repeal Or Revision

Section230AndImmunityOfSocialMediaProviders_675

Section 230 of the federal Communications Decency Act of 1996 was, broadly speaking, intended to immunize social media providers from liability for "reprinting" content created by others. Case law has, again generally speaking, been consistent with that intent. However, as providers have grown, there have been calls from the Executive Branch and others to abrogate or modify Section 230. This 60-minute webinar will introduce the origin and purpose of Section 230, review significant case law interpreting it, and look into the pros and cons of abrogation or modification.
