Next Meeting
Tuesday May 16, 2023 5:00pm - 6:00pm US/Eastern

We have confirmed two speakers from the law firm of 

Wilkinson, Barker, Knauer LLP 

 David Oxenford and Jonathan Cohen will be offering a high level discussion around the question of liability for social media content.  


There was the court case about the liability of YouTube for its search capabilities that was recently argued before the Supreme Court – the question of whether Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act which shelters internet hosting companies from liability for content posted by third parties extends to their search capabilities – or is that more like they posted the content themselves.  There are also the cases as to whether states can hold social media companies liable for blocking content based on political views – what is referred to as “digital discrimination.”  And there are all sort of copyright issues that are arising now about the extent to which companies can be liable for embedding links on their websites to social media content that may include copyrighted materials.  And there are all sorts of emerging issues on privacy as well. How may these various attempts to impose liability for online content tame the Wild West of the internet.
