The Sixth Circuit held, in Jones v. Dirty World Entertainment Recordings, that the Communications Decency Act (CDA) shields a website operator who added his own comments to third-party postings and actively encouraged the publication of “tortious content.”  Reversing the district court, the court ruled that a website and its operator’s actions had not materially contributed to the content at issue.  The Sixth Circuit’s decision will surely be welcomed by website operators, both for reinforcing the CDA’s broad reach and for trying to advance a uniform standard for assessing whether a website operator loses his CDA immunity by contributing to third-party content.
