Tech & Terrorism: Tech Giants Oppose Measure Strengthening Regulation Of Online Child Sex Abuse

In an effort to stave off pending U.S. regulation, the tech industry has opposed widely-supported bi-partisan U.S. legislation—the Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies Act (EARN IT Act)—that would help mitigate the prevalence of child sexual abuse material online.

Tech’s behavior underscores the troubling, and expensive, lengths tech companies are going to in order to oppose meaningful regulations that aim to make the Internet a safer place for all.
