For Platform Regulation Congress Should Use a European Cheat Sheet

Opinion piece from The Hill

Last year was a crazy year for internet platform regulation. Congress introduced over 20 separate bills to amend a key U.S. internet law: Communications Decency Act Section 230, better known as CDA 230. CDA 230 protects platforms ranging from Facebook to online retailers and hobbyist blogs, largely shielding them from liability for user content and giving them leeway to moderate that content.
