2/19/2020 | Anette Beebe attends DOJ's Workshop on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, Washington, DC
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is known for its the federal law that provides immunity to websites for content provided by a third-party. Think of websites and applications like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Yelp!, for example. Unfortunately for the lovers of the Internet, Section 230 has come under fire and, consequently, finds itself again in the crosshairs of Congress. The DOJ hosted a four hour public workshop entitled "Section 230 – Nurturing Innovation or Fostering Unaccountability?" and Ms. Beebe had the opportunity to be in the audience. "The workshop seemed to be the same tired arguments about how humans are bad and how tech needs to find a way to fix the bad human problem. It also seemed to be an attempt to push Attorney General Barr's push to end end-to-end encryption which is a valuable data privacy and security tool," said Ms. Beebe.
