SFC Communication Arts Department welcomes representatives from the FCC for a discussion on Bridging the Digital Divide for All Americans
This discussion will also include the FCC’s Authority to Interpret Section 230 of the Communications Act.
Section 230 “provides websites, including social media companies, that host or moderate content generated by others with immunity from liability” for third- party content. The FCC has been working on interpreting this law which has recently been a hot topic in the media.
This talk is part of the Communications and the Law course, taught by St. Francis College’s: Dr. Brian Gregory from the Communication Arts Department, in which students engage with legal theory, the ways laws are made, and the application of laws in society as they pertain to the field of Communication. Last year, students in this course took a class trip to Washington D.C. and met with FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, and Commission representatives. As part of this course, students complete projects focused on a current FCC issue.
This event is free and open to the public.
Prior registration is required. Instructions to join the online event will be emailed to all registered participants.
