Quotable

“Since 2018, we’ve held six hearings examining tech platform accountability, and our members have sent countless letters… To be clear, Section 230 is critically important to promoting a vibrant and free internet, but I agree with those who suggest the courts have allowed it to stray too far. Judge Katzman, the late Chief Judge of the Second Circuit, brought some clarity to this issue in his dissent in Force v. Facebook. He stated that Section 230 does not and should not bar relief when a plaintiff brings a claim that is based not on the content of the information shown but rather on the connections a platform’s algorithms make between individuals… The challenge for us is to clarify the statute, if the courts do not, while ensuring that we balance the statute’s good against the pain it inflicts.”
– House Commerce Chair Frank Pallone’s (D-NJ) remarks at a hearing entitled “Holding Big Tech Accountable: Targeted Reforms for Tech’s Legal Immunity”
