Platform Companies Beware! Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act Is Not Always There to Protect You (Webinar)
Join speakers, Erik Olson and Nate Garhart, in the discussion on "Platform Companies Beware! Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act Is Not Always There to Protect You."
Many are calling for Section 230 to be replaced or reformed, but for now, we have to deal with it. While it does have a reputation of protecting platform companies against lawsuits for most content that their users post on their platforms, it does not provide them with absolute immunity. If you’re a platform company, you likely know what kinds of legal claims Section 230 immunizes you against, and that you can probably quickly win on a motion to dismiss if those claims are brought against you. Join us as we discuss certain claims – some defined by statute, others developed by the case law – that Section 230 does not shelter.
