President considers Section 230 a gift for technology companies
U.S. President Donald Trump promised to veto the draft military budget for fiscal year 2021, if the document will have a section on exemption from liability of Internet companies.
“Section 230, a gift to technology companies, is a serious threat to national security and electoral integrity,” Trump said on Twitter. – If that dangerous and dishonest section is not completely removed from the military budget, I will veto it unconditionally when it comes to my desk.
Section 230 of the Communications Ethics Act protects technology companies from legal action for posting, deleting or otherwise modifying user-generated content.
