Engine Statement On Sen. Wyden's FOSTA amendments

The following can be attributed to Engine Executive Director Evan Engstrom:

"We applaud Sen. Wyden's work to address some of our concerns with this legislation.

That would make it substantially easier for platforms to proactively contribute to the fight against sex trafficking without fear of negative consequences."
