    The Electronic Frontier Foundation recently partnered with craigconnects to create an infographic raising awareness for Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which the organizations say is integral to protecting free speech online.

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation and Craigslist founder Craig Newmark want more people to know how important Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA 230) is in protecting free speech on the Internet.

    To that end, the EFF and Newmark’s craigconnects initiative released this infographic to highlight the importance of the federal law.

    This law helps protect free speech online. It's made a huge contribution to the explosion of innovation and expression online, and we need it." -Craig Newmark

    Newmark said in a release, “This law helps protect free speech online. It’s made a huge contribution to the explosion of innovation and expression online, and we need it.”
