Bad Samaritanism: Barnes v. Yahoo and Section 230 ISP Immunity

Chapter

Abstract

  • This book explores what the American Civil Liberties Union calls the 'third era' in cyberspace, in which filters fundamentally alter the architectural structure of the Internet, with significant implications for free speech. Internet companies often define their missions as making the world’s knowledge available to everyone with access to the World Wide Web, and organizing content for easier accessibility. Internet filters threaten to censor expressive commentaries, slow the growth of innovative companies, and to change the nature of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other popular Internet services. While limiting indecent, offensive, or illegal content, filters will sweep more broadly.
