    • Yes, Amazon relies on the protection of being a platform, not responsible for what its sellers do, same as social media companies do with content they host.

      There is an interesting change in the law to consider when regulating platform companies. Since YouTube is a major vector for spreading conspiracy theories, the thought is to hold them liable for what they recommend, not what they host. If their AI knew they'd be held legally responsible for recommendations, the thought is the algorithms would change in a hurry.

      Of course that begs the question of how YouTube would know. And I suppose the same applies to Amazon. How can they always know what's counterfeit?
