Statement On The EARN IT Act’s Passage In Senate Judiciary Committee

Washington, DC – IA Senior Director, Federal Government Affairs and Counsel Mike Lemon released the following statement on the passage of the EARN IT Act in The Senate Judiciary Committee:

“The internet industry shares the Senate Judiciary Committee’s goal of ending child exploitation online and appreciates their continued efforts to improve the EARN IT Act. However, we have serious remaining concerns. Foremost, this bill will not help achieve our shared goal and instead will create a harmful lack of coherence in state laws involving CSAM. The lack of clear federal standards would impede providers from their continued work to tackle this issue. IA hopes to work with lawmakers to improve this bill.”
