Why the arrest of Backpage CEO on pimping charges could change how everything on the web works

Interesting:

“The suit tests the limits of a law that is a vital part of the business model of many major internet companies. Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act says website operators can’t be held liable for content created by their users. It’s credited with allowing for the rise of Facebook, Google, and the broader world of social media and online marketplaces.”

Then telecom companies should be held liable because something traversed their network. Its such nonsense.
