This CLE will consider platform liability and reform; rumors and social media; social movements and social media; and state surveillance of social media. This seminar will also include a discussion of Section 230 and reform proposals and whether such reform could be accomplished consistent with the First Amendment, implications of government actors conducting official business on social media (e.g. Knight Institute v. Trump), social media defamation claims and the data/evidence available in litigation generally. Other topics include how newsworthy events are often first posted to social media and how content moderation policies can affect the delivery of that news.
