Probing the Outer Limits of Section 230
Some companies are hoping the CDA will protect them even as they engage in activities in the physical world, while at the same time, courts are pushing back in certain areas, even where the claim involves publisher activities. Our expert panel will discuss:
• The real-world impact of Roomates.com‘s “material contribution” standard for participating in the development of the actionable content.
• What makes Doe v. Internet Brands different from prior cases against MySpace and Match.com?
• Can legal duties be distinguished from publication liability?
• Where are the Section 230 boundaries now, and where should they be?

Cardozo School of Law; David Gingras, Attorney, Gingras Law Office, PLLC; Eric Goldman, Professor, Santa Clara University School of Law; Liz McDougall, General Counsel, Backpage.com.
