Under federal law -- the Communications Decency Act, Frenzyboard.net, is not legally responsible for the remarks that users post on its site, even if those remarks are defamatory. Frenzyboard.net, provides its website and its message boards as places where users can express their opinions, and Frenzyboard.net will not censor these opinions, or investigate the remarks for accuracy.

 

Specifically, 230 of the Communications Decency Act prevents courts from entertaining claims that would place an interactive computer service in a publisher's role. Thus, lawsuits seeking to hold an interactive computer service liable for its exercise of a publisher's traditional editorial functions -- such as deciding whether to publish, withdraw, postpone or alter content -- are barred. By its plain language, 230 creates a federal immunity to any cause of action that would make Interactive computer services liable for information originating with a third-party user of the service.
