ICLE’s Amicus Briefs on the Future of Online Speech
Over the past few months, we at the International Center for Law & Economics (ICLE) have endeavored to bring the law & economics methodology to the forefront of several major public controversies surrounding online speech. To date, ICLE has engaged these issues by filing two amicus briefs before the U.S. Supreme Court, and another in Ohio state court.
The basic premise we have outlined is that online platforms ought to retain the right to engage in the marketplace of ideas by exercising editorial discretion, free from government interference. A free marketplace of ideas best serves both the users of these platforms, and society at-large.
