Traverse Internet Law is a private law firm, not a public interest group. So we get to argue both sides of issues since we represent clients-not causes.
In Federal Court in New York we are arguing that our client deserves Section 230 immunity from liability for third party content. And at the same time, in Federal Court in Florida we are arguing that the Defendant is not entitled to Section 230 immunity for liability arising from third party content.
It is critically important to have a balanced perspective on legal matters, and the process of framing legal arguments starts with anticipating and then understanding what the other side is going to argue. Seeing it from both sides makes our job easier. If you cannot argue the other side's case effectively, you cannot deal with your own client's positions most effectively. So when clients wonder whose side we are on, probably thinking we have a pre-defined bias like Public Citizen, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the ACLU, the answer is that we are on the side of our client. Whoever that client may be and whatever their thoughts or beliefs may be. At Dozier Internet Law, we don't cloud our vision of vigorously representing the best interests of our clients with our own personal beliefs. We just focus on doing the best job possible for our clients...whoever and wherever they might be.

We had a lively debate at LeadsCon in Vegas last month in a General Session on FTC and legal compliance.
