CRS Reports – Week of 3-11-23 – Big Tech Regulation

With the continuing interest in Congress on potential
regulation of ‘Big Technology’ industry, the Congressional Research Service (CRS)
published a summary
looking at the recent reports that the CRS has prepared on related
topics. Those topics include:

• Antitrust issues,

• Content moderation and §230,

• Content moderation and free speech,

• Data protection and international
data flow,

• Cross-border investment and
commercial transactions,

• Net neutrality and common carrier

There is very little actual discussion in this report, it is
more of a CRS bibliography. The drawback to the document is that while it lists
CRS report numbers, it does not provide direct links to the documents. A reader
wishing to access one of the listed documents would have to copy the report
number and conduct a search on the CRS Reports search
. The reason for this is that CRS frequently updates reports while
keeping the same report number. Searching for the report number would take you
to the most current information.
