Tech industry slams GOP senator’s bill that would hold companies liable for user-posted content

A Facebook spokesman also pointed at a statement provided by NetChoice, a trade association focused on e-commerce businesses whose members include Facebook, Twitter and Google.
“This bill prevents social media websites from removing dangerous and hateful content, since that could make them liable for lawsuits over any user’s posting,”
said Carl Szabo, general counsel at NetChoice, in a statement.
“Sen. Hawley’s bill creates an internet where content from the KKK would display alongside our family photos and cat videos.”
