Defamation, False Information & 47 USC 230 Talk Slides

By Eric Goldman

Earlier this week, I spoke at a PLI event, “Social Media 2011: Addressing Corporate Risks,” on the topic of “Defamation, False Information and 47 USC 230” (this link takes you to the talk slides). I tried to skew the presentation towards topics that are relatively specific to social media defamation as opposed to generally applicable defamation issues. This also gave me yet another chance to remind folks about our 47 USC 230 conference on March 4, and the last slide (which I didn’t reach during the presentation) previews some points I will make in more detail in my forthcoming paper on 47 USC 230.
