Internet Still Free to Distribute Porn, Hate Speech to Minors!

“The government lost its final attempt Wednesday to revive a federal law intended to protect children from sexual material and other objectionable content on the Internet. The Supreme Court said it won’t consider reviving the Child Online Protection Act, which lower federal courts struck down as unconstitutional. The law has been embroiled in court challenges since it passed in 1998 and never took effect. It would have barred Web sites from making harmful content available to minors over the Internet.” [AP]
