TechDirt’s “You’ve Been Referred Here Because You’re Wrong About Section 230 Of The Communications Decency Act” Post

Mike Masnick does a public service at TechDirt with this June 2020 post debunking commonly repeated false claims about Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

If you said “Section 230 is a massive gift to big tech!”

Once again, I must inform you that you are very, very wrong. There is nothing in Section 230 that applies solely to big tech. Indeed, it applies to every website on the internet and every user of those websites. That means it applies to you, as well, and helps to protect your speech. It’s what allows you to repeat something someone else said on Facebook and not be liable for it. It’s what protects every website that has comments, or any other third-party content. It applies across the entire internet to every website and every user, and not just to big tech.
