Yesterday in Berlin, I attended a workshop on the use of artificial intelligence in governing communication online, hosted by the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society. In the United States and Europe, many platforms that host user content, such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, have enjoyed safe harbor protections for the content they host, under laws such as Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), and in Europe, Articles 12–15 of the eCommerce Directive. Some of these laws, such as the DMCA, provide immunity to platforms for copyright damages if the platforms remove content based on knowledge that it is unlawful. Section 230 of the CDA provides broad immunity to platforms, with the express goals of promoting economic development and free expression. Daphne Keller has a good summary of the legal landscape on intermediary liability.
