In the last few years, but especially the last few weeks, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act has been a frequent topic in the news and political debate. From Donald Trump’s Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship to Sen. Josh Hawley’s and Presidential Candidate Joe Biden’s recent calls to revoke 230, it is clear that “the law that created the internet” means different things to different people for different reasons. This series aims to bring much needed clarity to this conversation from the experts who know best precisely what 230 stands for, what it meant, what is means now, and what a world will look like with or without it. The experts in these panels are lawyers and not; have worked inside tech companies and brought litigation against them; fought for reform of 230 and railed against it; are conservative and liberal; from government agencies and activist groups. Their diverse and knowledgeable discussion of these issues aims to serve as a reference point for lawmakers, journalists, agencies, and the public going forward.
