Daphne Keller on the Regulation of Online Speech

Season 1, Ep. 406

In this episode, Daphne Keller, Director of Intermediary Liability at the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School and former Associate General Counsel for Google, discusses her essay "Who Do You Sue?: State and Platform Hybrid Power Over Online Speech," which is published by the Hoover Institution. Keller begins by explaining how the First Amendment does - or doesn't - affect the ability of internet platforms to regulate online speech. She describes various arguments about why internet platforms should or shouldn't regulate speech, proposals to implement those arguments, and why those proposals are likely to fail. And she reflects on how internet platforms can and should regulate online speech. Keller is on Twitter at @daphnehk.
