In this episode, Gregory M. Dickinson, a Fellow at the Stanford Law School Program in Law, Science and Technology, discusses his article "Rebooting Internet Immunity," which will be published in the George Washington Law Review. Dickinson begins by explaining what Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act does and why it was enacted. He reflects on how it has shaped the evolution of the internet, and why many people increasingly think it needs to be amended or repealed. He proposes a revision of Section 230 to focus the immunity it provides on content moderation, and not more traditional product liability claims.
