On March 30, 2021, the Federalist Society's DC Young Lawyers Chapter and the Regulatory Transparency Project cosponsored a panel event discussing "Section 230."
The average American can't cite specific provisions of the US Code, but Section 230 is a notable exception. Few statutes have generated as much controversy and debate, and arguably have had as much impact on American political discourse. Has Section 230 become a tool of abuse for tech monopolies, or is it an essential mechanism for defending internet freedom?
