Nancy Kim, a law professor joins us to discuss website liability. This is referring to an article by Professor Kim written in 2009, Website Proprietorship and Online Harrassment published in the Utah Law Review. Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act gives website owners immunity for content posted by others on their website and gives them no incentive to remove offensive content. Professor Kim explains that Section 230 is difficult to interpret, but she does a great job of explaining it to us. She also tells us about online versus offline publishers; how online businesses are using “we are protecting free speech” to protect themselves; that the “poster” of a message is liable and can be sued; and to remember that online businesses are “businesses” and have a goal of making money.
Nancy Kim is a professor of Law at California Western School of Law, Visiting Professor at the Rady School of Management at University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Chair of the Contracts Section of the Association of American Law Schools and a past member of its Executive Committee of the Internet and Computer Law Section. She is also an elected member of the American Law Institute. Professor Kim is the author of Wrap Contracts: Foundations and Ramifications (Oxford University Press, 2013) which focuses on how contracts affect and control online behavior.
Before working in academia, Professor Kim worked for several technology companies and two major law firms. She has published many articles and essays and her name has appeared in the Boston Globe, slate.com, the San Diego Union Tribune, and the Sacramento Bee, just to name a few. She is also a Contributing Editor to the Contracts Law Prof Blog, which is the official blog of the AALS section on Contracts.
