Abstract

In 2022, New York enacted General Business Law Section 394-ccc, which mandates that social media networks disclose their editorial policies towards "hateful conduct." This amicus brief from TechFreedom and Prof. Eric Goldman explains how such editorial disclosure requirements are historically unprecedented and act as a form of censorship over publication decisions.

Keywords: hateful conduct, hate speech, censorship, free speech, first amendment, editorial transparency

JEL Classification: K2, K4, L86, O33
