CFA Urges FCC to Leave Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to Congress

CFA submitted comments to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) opposing the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) proposal that the FCC establish new rules regarding Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. While platforms’ immunity from liability has important implications for competition, safety, and online speech, CFA argued that the FCC should leave the crucial debate about Section 230 reform to Congress and focus on the role it can play in reinvigorating antitrust and oversight in the communications sector.
