On Tuesday, Barbara Bauer’s defamation suit against Wikipedia/Wikimedia was dismissed on the grounds that the CDA provided a safe harbor for websites that host content created by others. I thought that this would be the ruling
“To date, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act has begun to be interpreted fairly broadly to immunize websites from the actions of its commenters (and in Wikipedia’s case, the actions of the webizens who edit it).”
Claims still exist against 19 individuals and the SFF Writers of America.
