“Protecting Americans from Dangerous Algorithms Act” and Section 230


protest 2021-9-18

Here’s another attempt to reform Section 230, “Protecting Americans from Dangerous Algorithms Act” (HR-PADAA) would remove downstream liability protection when content is chosen for the user by algorithm and violent radicalization ensues.

Will Duffield takes the bill apart for Techdirt. The point is that Facebook (McNeal v. Facebook) doesn’t look at the viewpoint in applying user-history algorithms, although it does in demonetization and shadow-banning or community guidelines.
