On the Greg & Dan Show: Ambrose McCall Discusses Upcoming SCOTUS Cases Regarding Online Speech and the Future of Social Media
Hinshaw partner Ambrose McCall recently joined the Greg and Dan Show to discuss two pivotal cases scheduled to be heard by the US Supreme Court regarding online speech. McCall discussed the background of the two cases, the significance of the two cases, and how they could shape the future of social media.
McCall explained that the US Supreme Court must decide whether the artificial intelligence algorithm that recommends posts for users to view qualifies for immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in order to avoid lawsuits alleging violations of the US Anti-Terrorism Act. McCall noted that this algorithm accounts for a significant portion of social media companies' revenue, citing facts indicating that approximately 70 percent of YouTube's revenue comes from recommended clicks.
