Tech Roundup Episode 5 – Section 230

In this episode, experts discuss Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects platforms from liability for the content produced by users. Some legislators have recently floated the idea of enforcing ‘platform neutrality’ in a way that, according to critics, threatens the sort of free speech Section 230 is meant to protect. The experts featured in this episode have a lively discussion on these and other topics.
