About Section 230

Section 230 enables online platforms to host user-created content, empowering everyone to exercise free speech and free enterprise online.

Protecting online platforms isn’t about protecting tech companies.

It’s about enabling American voices and American jobs.

Online platforms are integral to our daily lives.

Section 230 helps us connect with our families, our communities, our customers, our small businesses, and turns us all into creators.

By holding platforms responsible for what they produce and users responsible for what they post, these limits on platform liability protect an internet by the people, for the people.
