Described as the “26 words that created the Internet,” Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act provides important liability protections to online content hosts. But CDA 230 is increasingly becoming a target for reform or repeal as Washington policymakers battle with tech giants over issues from election interference and political misinformation to child exploitation and harmful content. As this law approaches its 25th birthday, we will explore how CDA 230 and proposed reforms impact Arizona businesses.
This event will provide an overview of CDA 230 and its implementation since 1996, describe which businesses are subject to the law, particularly its impact on small to medium sized businesses and Internet startups, and describe President Trump’s Executive Order and the various reform proposals pending in Congress.
