AB 587 - Terms of Service Reports

In 2022, the California Legislature enacted AB 587, codified at Business & Professions Code, sections 22675-22681, and subsequently amended by AB 1027. This law requires a social media company, as defined, to submit to the Attorney General a Terms of Service Report, which must include various information set forth in section 22677, subdivision (a). This Terms of Service Report shall be submitted on a semiannual basis and the Attorney General is required to make all submitted Terms of Service Reports available to the public in a searchable repository on its official internet website.

A social media company that violates this law is liable for a civil penalty of up to $15,000 per day, and may be enjoined.
