Section 230 is in the news a lot lately as calls to reform or replace it are coming from both sides of the aisle.

If you’re a platform company, you likely know what kinds of legal claims Section 230 immunizes you against, and that you can probably quickly win on a motion to dismiss if those claims are brought against you. But there are certain claims – some defined by statute, others developed by the case law – that Section 230 does not shelter. This presentation focuses on those types of claims.
