On January 17, 2023, WLF filed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to confirm that Section 230 protects interactive computer services from claims based on third-party content. Lower courts have coalesced around an interpretation of Section 230 barring suits against websites like YouTube for content uploaded by third parties. As WLF’s brief explains, this interpretation is the only one supported by Section 230’s plain language. WLF’s brief also describes why allowing Section 230 to preempt state-law claims violates neither the clear-statement rule nor federalism principles.
