Online Speech

Section 230

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act protects your right to free speech online — and our ability to freely exchange ideas with the world. 

It stands for the common-sense principle that responsibility for online speech lies with the speaker and ensures that internet platforms can remove offensive or inappropriate speech without fear of liability.

Combined with our First Amendment, Section 230 is a key reason why U.S. companies are the world leaders in communications, business and entertainment. 

We oppose efforts to weaken Section 230 and make the internet a less vibrant platform for culture, commerce and competition.
