The COMO Summit is a followup to the “Content Moderation And Removal At Scale Conference” held at Santa Clara Law in February 2018. The DC COMO Summit will further explore the vexing challenges that Internet platforms face in moderating content online. Recent phenomena like #deepfakes, Russian election interference, and extremist content are just some of the challenges that our experts will explore at COMO.

Content moderation has been going on for as long as the Internet has existed, but how is it governed? In this panel, we’ll take a look at the laws Congress has passed, or is considering passing, to regulate this field, and we’ll examine how those laws interact within First Amendment jurisprudence, campaign finance laws, and agency enforcement action. We’ll also examine how solutions mandated by Congress interact with company- or industry-specific self-regulation.
