Section 230 and Interoperability

  • Apply an openness requirement only where the problems described above apply, which is for services that primarily host and present social, user generated content.
  • Limit an openness requirement to larger platforms, for example borrowing the 100 million MAUs (Monthly Active Users) metric from the Senate’s ACCESS Act.
  • Design the requirement to be variable across different services, and to engage platforms in the process. The kinds of APIs that Facebook and YouTube would set up to make this concept successful would be quite different.
  • Allow platforms to adopt reasonable security and privacy access controls for their provisioned APIs or other interoperability interfaces.
  • Preserve platform takedowns of content and accounts upstream of any provisioned APIs or other interoperability interfaces, to take advantage of scale in responding to Coordinated Inauthentic Behavior (CIB).
  • Encourage platform providers to allow small amounts of API/interoperability interface access for free, while permitting them to charge fair, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory rates to third parties operating at larger scale.
