Understanding Content Moderation and Trust & Safety
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.
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.
