Great Summary of Section 230

by on June 28, 2009 · 3 comments

Eric Goldman offers a terrific—and concisesummary of Section 230 and how courts have recently interpreted its grant of broad immunity to online intermediaries, most notably:

47 USC 230 tries to divide online content into first party content and third party content. In its simplest form, 230 says that online actors can’t be liable for third party content unless (1) ECPA, (2) federal criminal enforcement, or (3) IP claims.

It’s worth reading the rest.
