Does the ADA Apply to Online-Only Businesses?

In the past, a “place of public accommodation” was defined as a physical construction whose operation affects the global market. 

Before the internet became ubiquitous, it was assumed that the ADA applied only to physical structures, which excluded online-only businesses from ADA coverage.

However, recent lawsuits against private companies for inaccessible digital operations have broadened this definition and set precedents with crucial effects for online-only businesses–including ones that use video content.
