From 2023FallA-X-MCO506-95733-95732


  • After further study of Section 230, has your opinion of the law changed?
  • Is there an argument to be made that Section 230 actually promotes competition?
  • Question to ask yourself: How can start-up social media companies compete if they have to pay attorney’s fees for lawsuits concerning third-party costs?
  • Do you think that’s why Facebook is ok with Section 230 being amended? Alternatively, are social media companies now just really publishers, or news sources, who should be treated like traditional media?
