Critical Protection of Section 230 Leaves Much Needed Room for Congress to Consider Reform

 Washington, DC – The Bipartisan Policy Center’s Technology Project is pleased that the Supreme Court’s opinions in Gonzalez v. Google and Twitter v. Taamneh leave Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act intact.  

“Section 230 is critically important for the function of the modern internet and the economic activities it supports, which is why our amicus brief argued in favor of allowing elected officials to deliberate potential changes to this momentous law,” said Tom Romanoff director of BPC’s Technology Project. “Today’s decisions leave room for such deliberation, and we look forward to working with both Democrat and Republican members of Congress as they consider whether to reform this law.”
