The “CASE-IT Act” amends Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to temporarily suspend any sort of immunity for digital platforms that: create, develop, post, or materially contribute to illegal online content, or induce another person to do it; knowingly permit or facilitate illicit sexual contact online between an adult and a minor; and/or do not effectively screen minors from accessing indecent, obscene, or otherwise harmful content. The bill also requires dominant digital platforms to adhere to a First Amendment standard for their content moderation practices, and subjects them to a private right of action.
