EARN IT Act (2022)

Issue: Free Expression

Latest Action: Failed on January 3, 2023

The EARN IT Act allows federal and state governments to prosecute, and victims to sue, a site or service if CSAM is uploaded onto the platform. While the prevention of CSAM is a worthy goal, under the EARN IT Act, a platform may become legally liable for any uploads of illegal content, no matter how aggressively they work to block it.
