Defamatory Internet Speech: A Defense of the Status Quo by Anthony Ciolli

Defamatory Internet Speech: A Defense of the Status Quo by Anthony Ciolli (Quinnipiac Law Review)
Abstract: This brief essay is a critique of Glenn Reynold’s paper Libel in the Blogosphere: Some Preliminary Thoughts. I conclude that Reynolds’s proposal to treat defamatory internet and blog speech as slander, while well-intentioned, would have a devastating impact on defamation victims’ ability to recover due to the interplay between Reynold’s proposal and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
