Senators Mark Warner, Amy Klobuchar and Mazie Hirono on Friday unveiled a plan to reform a long-standing law that gave legal cover to tech companies. Called the SAFE TECH Act, the Democrats would strip away liability protection over "alleged violations of federal or state civil rights laws, antitrust laws, cyberstalking laws, human rights laws or civil actions regarding a wrongful death" along with other situations. Critics warn that should the bill become law, it could "devastate" the internet.
