Website Liability Bill in Congress Sparks Constitutional Debate

Tech companies are concerned about the retroactive provision. The bill “includes a provision the Department of Justice has said is unconstitutional,” Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel at e-commerce trade group NetChoice, said in a statement. “At a minimum, Congress should not deliberately pass unconstitutional legislation. This provision can easily be fixed through a simple amendment and clear report language.”
