FOSTA! How Congress Broke the Internet
August 4 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE FACEBOOK LIVE STREAMED. NO MEMBERS OF THE AUDIENCE WILL BE CAPTURED ON VIDEO BY US.
FOSTA greatly expands the legal risks involved in hosting individuals’ speech online and creates a new federal crime prohibiting online promotion or facilitation of prostitution. It does little to reduce human trafficking and puts sex workers in danger. The law has resulted in broad-based censorship of internet speech which jeopardizes not only classified ads sites but also dating apps, discussion forums, social media sites, and any other service that hosts user-generated content.
