Washington, D.C. – TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today issued the following statement, attributable to President and CEO Linda Moore, on the Supreme Court’s decisions in Moody v. NetChoice and NetChoice v. Paxton:

“Today’s Supreme Court decisions are a win for free speech and a healthy internet ecosystem. The court’s ruling that basic First Amendment rights apply to online platforms, just as they do for offline entities, is a win for the American people as well. Removing these protections would have fundamentally changed how we communicate and interact online, created a less safe user experience, endangered lawful online expression, and weakened U.S. innovation.

“We are pleased the Supreme Court instructed lower courts to review and analyze these two laws based on long-established First Amendment principles.”
