David Ardia is the director of the Citizen Media Law Project at Harvard. He spoke on a panel in Worcester last November and gave a great summation of CDA 230 and the legal protections newspapers are granted to moderate comments on their sites.
I had forgotten this session was videotaped until seeing a Tweet from Patrick Beeson: @patrickbeeson Yes, you can police comments on your news site and not get sued: http://bit.ly/Fk3u
Watching the beginning of the video – I thought it all seemed familiar. Then I realized I was on the panel and (off screen) was sitting two seats to the right of Ardia. There must be some term for that – maybe deja view. That would be a case of deja vu caused by viewing a video of an event that you forgot you had witnessed live.
The video was recorded and posted by Josh Benton at the Neiman Journalism Lab at Harvard.
