The Digital Media Lawyer Blog: “The dominant understanding among U.S. Circuit Courts is that the Communications Decency Act is an immunity statute that protects an ISP from any kind of civil suit for publishing information from a third party. Among the Circuits that have adopted this position are the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 10th. There have been some partial dissenters from this view, including the 7th and the 9th Circuits. . . . In a recent decision, the 4th Circuit has reaffirmed its position that the CDA provides ISPs with immunity from suit for information created and developed by third parties. S ee Nemet Chevrolet v. Consumeraffairs.com, 4th Cir., No. 08-2097 (Dec., 29. 2009).”
