Don’t Shoot the Message Board - Section 230's Importance to American Jobs

  • 1310 Longworth House Office Building (map)


We've heard a lot of talk about the law that powers the internet - Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act - a law that makes Wikipedia, Yelp, and Change.org possible. Some in Congress believe the law should be changed.

NetChoice hosts the release of Mike Masnick's new report, ""Don't Shoot the Message Board." The report outlines the value of Section 230 to the American economy.

Join us for a conversation with Mike Masnick and other experts who will discuss the report, the impact of Section 230 on American jobs and what the cost could be if we take it away.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Mike Masnick - Copia Institute, CEO (@mmasnick)

  • Jesse Blumenthal - Stand Together, Vice President, Technology & Innovation (@jessekblum)

  • Emma Llanso - Center for Democracy and Technology, Director of the Free Expression Project (@ellanso)

  • Carl Szabo - NetChoice, Vice President and General Counsel (@carlszabo)

  • Rachel Wolbers - US Department of Commerce - NTIA, Internet Policy Specialist
