Event Details

Hosted by Stanford CIS

Section 230 has been a wide-ranging piece of legislation. Before 230, the common law held online forums and other digital locations liable for knowingly -- or intentionally -- allowing third parties to post defamatory material. Section 230 fundamentally changed the landscape. This presentation will provide an overview of 230, its scope, potential reforms, and practical considerations for practitioners.
