The American Bar Association held a virtual discussion on the Department of Justice’s recently proposed changes to the Communications Decency Act, which was written in 1996. Lauren Willard, counselor to Attorney General William Barr, outlined the changes to Section 230 of the act, which provides protections for internet service providers against lawsuits for content posted on their sites. Ms. Willard explained the proposed changes would require providers to be more transparent when removing content, while at the same time require platforms to more aggressively police illicit activities on their websites. Panelists also discussed the potential unintended consequences of removing Section 230 protections and the need to update internet regulations. close
