This Story, from Wired, gives an update on
the Commission on Child Online Protection [COPA]unanimously endorsed a largely hands-off approach to the Internet, while saying that practices such as mislabeling adult sites as innocuous should be against the law. The final report does not recommend additional criminal laws or a .xxx or .sex top-level domain. Instead, it calls for more \"public education\" and \"responsible adult empowerment.\"
Be sure to check out the COPA Research Papers , a collection of Pro and Con reports from a wide spectrum of folks on both sides of the debate, including:
European Union, Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, Morality in Media, OCLC Office of Research, Peacefire.org, and U.S. National Commission on Libraries and Science.
