Organized by the Young Lawyers Committee for all practitioners.

Description: Section 230, the law that gives immunity to interactive computer services for their content moderation practices, has come under the microscope because of the content moderation choices of many social media platforms.  In July, as required by a presidential Executive Order, NTIA filed a petition with the FCC seeking new rules to clarify the scope and application of Section 230.  This event will help Section 230 newcomers get a baseline understanding of the statutory provision and also dive deep on key developments, including whether the FCC has authority to adopt rules interpreting Section 230, how section 230 has been interpreted to date, and the legal and policy implications that would result from changes to the law.

Opening Remarks: Adam Candeub, Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information, NTIA
