Eric, Eric Goldman, Santa Clara University School Of Law discussed on The DeMaio Report with Carl DeMaio and Lou Penrose


It's all free. We just want you to be here in our public forum because we'll sell ads to you. Why is that? Not In essence, a case of fraud because now we've got people being restricted in ways that they aren't understanding why they're being restricted. So you should from talking about public forums, which only governments can create and establishing patients for their constituents to talk to each other. Not according to Preform doctrine, only according to premieres, But go ahead. Not according to pray not according to Prune yards, and not according to this recent Supreme Court, ruling that Trump's Twitter that the Internet service well with Republicans, and that's now a matter of law. That's now a matter of law. That's constitutional while we may not like it, but that's variety. With that particular case. That case said that Trump created a public forum. It didn't say that Twitter as a service became a public forum. Really makes a difference, and courts have rejected consistently. The argument that you're making that the case stood for the proposition now that Twitter itself with the public forum because of the fact that government great public forums on it. But your fraud argument I think is actually an interesting one because you kind of have to read the whole package. He pointed out that the Internet services provide their services usually for and they say, Here's the deal. You gotta buy our house rules. You don't get to come and say whatever you want. You have to say it within these certain confines. And so if you're going to say that they're engaging in fraud, you have to look at what do they say off the entire communications with users? Do they say you have an unrestricted unlimited right to speak, or you can speak as if you comply with our house rules. If it's the latter, there's no fraud at all. Alright, Eric. Thank you so much for stopping by. We do disagree. We'll see where this goes. I think it's obviously a top issue that people are talking about. And For some of us. It's a matter of constitutional rights. And for others. It's a matter of well the right of private companies to govern their affairs. Appreciate you stopping by. That's Eric Goldman, Santa Clara University School of Law associate dean of research are coming up. I don't think that the strongest case against the Internet providers has been made in this lawsuit. It is certainly a case that may prevail, but I do think we have to explore the issue of fraud. I think that is stronger, particularly for a class action lawsuit coming up. I'll explain why first traffic.
