Broadband Breakfast Section 230 Series

· July 8, 2020

As debate around Section 230 continues, Broadband Breakfast has begun hosting a series of three live lunch events titled Section 230: Separating Fact from Fiction, in partnership with CCIA. Each event in the series focuses on a different aspect of the debate and is linked below. If you happen to miss the events, recordings are available on the respective event pages.

  • Wednesday, July 1, 2020, 12 Noon ET — “Content Moderation: How it Works, Why it Works, and Best Practices”
    • This panel will consider how different platforms approach content moderation, comparing reasons for a more active or more laissez-faire approach. It will consider what “best practices” have emerged for ensuring online diversity without permitting online harassment. It will also feature a discussion of how platforms moderate content in the U.S. versus internationally.

Competition

Some, if not all of society’s most useful innovations are the byproduct of competition. In fact, although it may sound counterintuitive, innovation often flourishes when an incumbent is threatened by a new entrant because the threat of losing users to the competition drives product improvement. The Internet and the products and companies it has enabled are no exception; companies need to constantly stay on their toes, as the next startup is ready to knock them down with a better product.
