Evan Engstrom, executive director of Engine, said he expected this response given the ambiguity of the bill, especially for websites “that have large user bases commenting on a range of topics.”“This isn’t at all a publicity thing.This is just a reality of how you have to do business when there’s potential criminal liability for content that you may not necessarily see,” says Engstrom.In an attempt to curb sex trafficking, the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) amends a bedrock law — Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act — that helped the internet flourish by shielding websites from liability for outside content.Reddit also shuttered sections of its website as part of a policy update that prohibited “paid services involving physical sexual contact,” but the company did not specifically call out FOSTA.Communities focused on such transactions and users who attempt to conduct them will be banned from the site.”Reddit declined to say whether its policy change was related to FOSTA, but the company signed a letter to members of Congress earlier this month protesting the bill.The letter was organized by Engine, a nonprofit representing tech startups, and was also signed by Automattic (the company that owns Wordpress), Patreon, Cloudflare, Twitter, Match Group (the company that owns Tinder, Ok Cupid, and Match.com), Pinterest, Wikimedia Foundation, Github, Medium, and Yelp.Liara Roux, a sex worker, political organizer, and adult-media producer and director, says a handful of other sites shut advertising forums, including The Erotic Review and City Vibe, hours after FOSTA passed.“[E]verything we've been warning people about for a year has been proven true within 24 hours, before it's even signed into law,” Roux said in an email to WIRED.
