Public Utility Research Center Director and Gunter Professor Mark Jamison hosts this panel discussion on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which was designed to promote a competitive online ecosystem that maximizes user control while guarding against illegal activities.

The law is credited with empowering unprecedented innovation, but it is also blamed for allowing Big Tech to suppress speech and avoid liability for seemingly unchecked misinformation. Proposals to reform Section 230 — and views about its impact — vary. Some believe the law is a key protector of online expression, while others believe it provides cover for suppression of free speech. And some seek to expand Big Tech’s responsibility to limit what can be said on social media.

What lies ahead for Section 230?
