“Today, the law of the Internet is controlled by two major Federal statutes: the Communications Decency Act (CDA) and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act(DMCA). These laws were enacted in 1996 and 1998, respectively, and they have not been updated, even though the Internet today would be unrecognizable to politicians of 1996. The legal loophole in the communications decency act makes it impossible to force a website to remove anonymous attacks, no matter how false and damaging they may be. The result of the CDA and the DMCA are perverse and bewildering: Viacom can send one letter to Youtube and force it to remove 50,000 videos for copyright violations, but if an anonymous attacker were to upload a lie-filled video about your kid sister to the same site, she would have no power to force the site to take the undoubtedly illegal video down.” (pg 6 Fertik & Thompson)
The cost is immediate, staggering, and long term.
