Abstract

The Garcia v. Google case raises complex issues about copyright law, privacy law and liability for user-generated content. A dozen Internet Law professors submitted this amicus brief to the Ninth Circuit for the en banc rehearing of Garcia v. Google. It addresses how overly broad applications of copyright law can undermine Congress' intent in providing 47 USC 230's statutory immunity.

Keywords: garcia, google, copyright, 47 usc 230, section 230, internet immunity, user-generated content, youtube, social media, social networking

JEL Classification: o34, k1, k42
