The Associated Press has highlighted, in a long-read, a legal case which looks to challenge the protection of internet platforms under s.230 of the Communications Decency Act.
The Supreme Court case concerns liability for YouTube suggestions which are argued helped the Islamic State recruit. The case is brought by the family of Nohemi Gonzalez who tragically lost her life in a terrorist attack in Paris.
The case is due to be heard on Tuesday 21 February.
