Free Expression Policy Project on Censorware

Seth Finkelstein writes "Free
Expression Policy Project
has a press release on
censorware and the "COPA" decision: "Ironically, in view of the ACLU's educational materials pointing out
the massive censorship potential of filters, the ACLU and its fellow
plaintiffs now presented experts touting filters' virtues, while the
government, which had praised filters a few years earlier when it
successfully defended a federal law that mandated their use in schools
and libraries now pointed out their flaws. The ACLU explained its
apparent inconsistency by saying that filters are fine as long as
nobody is compelled to use them.""
