The Value of Section 230 Immunity
Techdirt offers a pretty compelling argument for supporting Section 230 immunity for social media providers like Facebook and Twitter. Personally speaking, I agree with most of what they say. My only issue is what should be done with the Backpage.com’s of the world. I have a hard time seeing the justification for granting them immunity when they are accused of sex trafficking. I think Section 230 needs some modification to address sites like Backpage.com, which have little to no incentive to regulate their sites.
