In this special presentation, adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein is joined special guests Alison Boden of the Free Speech Coalition and Siri Dahl.

“Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is arguably the foundational law that led to the growth of the internet as we know it today. In fact, without Section 230, I do not believe that many of the online platforms in existence today would have been possible,” Silverstein explained.

Over the last few years, he noted, Section 230 has been attacked by politicians and lawmakers who have been dissatisfied with the level of legal protection granted to computer services providers, and “nothing can be more demonstrative of these attacks than FOSTA/SESTA becoming law.”

“Anti-Section 230 rulings from the judiciary have been coming out of multiple jurisdictions, and current proposed legislation known as the EARN IT Act threatens to gut Section 230 as we know it,” he said. “Adult businesses and performers are already suffering from all of the anti-Section 230 changes that have occurred. With more changes potentially on the way via the EARN IT Act, there is no more important conversation that should be taking place.”
