So, there are a couple of big cases coming up before the Supreme Court in the next week or so that might lead to the overturning of Section 230 of whatever law it's part of, I think the 1996 Digital Millennium Copyright Act. I'm wondering if the powers that be at MetaFilter have been looking at this and what the implications might be for our little community if this does end up getting overturned. Members of the community might have further insights.
This post is being prompted by this thread: Abortion rights under imminent threat?. Early on in the thread, some Mefites asked about concrete actions that can be done, to protest this absolutey disasterous decision. It got lost, though, in the discussion over politics and procedures - which is completely valid! It's a great discussion! So, I thought I'd open this space both for venting, and also on discussing the actual logistics of protesting. There are probably a lot of people who are completely new to protesting, and this could be a great space to discuss it, and educate each other. Please, obviously, avoid discussing illegal stuff here!
