Which of the following gives immunity to providers of interactive computer services for liability they might otherwise incur on account of material disseminated by them but created by others? a. the internet communications act of 2000b. the interactive computer services protection act of 2004c. the communications decency act of 1996d. the internet communications protection act of 1998e. the blog protection act of 2001
The correct answer is C. The Communications Decency Act of 1996 gives immunity to providers of interactive computer services for liability they might otherwise incur on account of material disseminated by them but created by others.
The Communications Decency Act (CDA) was part of the 1996 US Telecommunications Act. The bill was passed by the US Congress on February 6, 1996. His main goal was the regulation of adult sites on the Internet. However, activists, civil rights movements such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which fought for freedom of expression, almost completely rebuilt the CDA. The result was a law that promoted freedom of expression, since henceforth, no information provider on the Internet had to fear more, to be held accountable for contributions from its customers.
Section 230 of the CDA added to the law valuable protection for Internet service providers and users against any action that might be taken by third parties. It is literally stated that no provider or user of an interactive computer offer may be treated as the author of information originating from another information provider. This part of the CDA, the so-called provider privilege, remains in force.
