St. John’s University School of Law presents COMO III in NYC: Content Moderation& the Future of Online Speech on Oct. 25, 2018. Register online.
This conference explores how online platforms create policy to moderate and remove user content posted on their sites, how they operationalize those policies, and how these policies affect the culture of online speech for individuals and new media. Panels will include policy representatives from top platforms, former moderators speaking to the history of how content moderation policies were created, simulation exercises for the audience, and a keynote panel on content moderation and free speech with Ben Smith (Editor-in-Chief of Buzzfeed) and Josh Marshall (Founder, Editor, and Publisher of Talking Points Memo) moderated by Jack Balkin (Professor of Law at Yale Law School).
