In Support of Free Speech
Tobias Lütke

‘Commerce is a powerful, underestimated form of expression. We use it to cast a vote with every product we buy. It’s a direct expression of democracy.’

‘Why does Shopify host stores like Breitbart?

We don’t like Breitbart, but products are speech and we are pro free speech.’

Shopify is not a government institution but a publicly traded company. Your ToS can define whatever terms of use you want, which are likely directed by profit margins.

The free speech argument continues to be a dodge that consistently prioritizes profit over values.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
