Newly Enacted Social Media Content Moderation Laws
Stacey Chuvaieva will be speaking on the panel, "Newly Enacted Social Media Content Moderation Laws," on February 21, 2023 for MyLawCLE.com via live video-broadcast.
California has recently enacted several content moderation laws. AB-587, AB 1628, and SB 1056 require social media platforms to make available terms of service, including policies on distribution of controlled substances through platforms, violent threats and describe their content moderation practices in annual reports. These laws are several among a patchwork of newly enacted social media content moderation laws reflecting an overarching desire to reduce or address the spread of harmful information in social media. Texas, Florida and New York introduced similar laws addressing content moderation practices.
Key topics to be discussed:
- Landscape of state content moderation laws (California, New York, Texas, and Florida)
- California content moderation laws (AB-587, AB 1628, and SB 1056)
- New York’s A7865A and S4511A requiring social media networks to provide and maintain mechanisms for reporting hateful conduct
- Free speech challenges of Texas and Florida content moderation laws
