The Supreme Court is holding an oral argument that could reshape the scope of legal liability for Big Tech companies.

Gonzalez v. Google was filed by the family of Nohemi Gonzalez, an American woman who was killed in the 2015 ISIS attack in Paris, France. The family is arguing that Google, which owns YouTube, aided ISIS by allowing recruitment videos and pushing that content to users through its algorithms, in turn inciting violence.



The question facing the Supreme Court, is are websites like a newspaper in which the newspaper is responsible for the content of letters submitted to the editor, Therefore responsible for what is published? Or are websites more like telephone companies that provides a platform for people to communicate pretty much whatever they want and the phone companies are not responsible for what is said over their lines and airwaves.

There is a lot made about supposed nefarious nature of algorithms, especially by people who want to curtail the Internet. This website uses algorithms. Algorithms are used to keep the viewers interested. Print newspapers do much the same thing: they put sports articles in the sports section because people who are interested in one sport might be interested in another. They donít put the recipes in the sports section or baseball scores in the food section. Newspapers, magazines, radio and TV all strategically place ads in and places that is likely to catch the eyes or ears of appropriate audiences.
