Think Out Loud

"President Trump recently signed a law aimed at shutting down and prosecuting sex traffickers. The Allows States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) was debated for months, with Oregon’s senior U.S. senator opposing it, saying it would not do enough to reduce sex trafficking and would do too much to impede free speech online. Law professor Mary Graw Leary tells us why she thinks FOSTA is working, and Electronic Freedom Foundation activist Elliot Harmon shares his deep concerns about the law."
