Understanding Content Moderation and Trust & Safety

· July 15, 2021

As you may know, DisCo maintains a regularly updated resource page on Section 230 to help educate about this important U.S. law that protects user speech and encourages investment in innovation.  DisCo has developed a new video on the legal framework protecting free speech and users that provides a brief overview of how and why digital services engage in content moderation to promote a safer and more trustworthy Internet.

 

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.
