The "greatest of all Internet laws" turns 15 this year

“Section 230”, or the Telecommunications Act of 1996: 47 U.S.C. §230, turns 15 this year. This is the obscure provision that protects internet computer services (websites, social sharing websites, etc.) from being sued for containing stuff that site users put in.  Thus the praise, the "greatest of all Internet laws".
