David Burt says: Filtering Facts is back on the web after a too long absence. In keeping with my long association with filtering software, I have completely reconstituted www.filteringfacts.org as both a deep reference site of all things related to filtering software, as well as a daily blog of reporting on Internet filtering and Internet safety. Among the material in the new website are:
-- Legal page (http://filteringfacts.org/legal/ )
Extensive information on all U.S. legal cases involving filtering (CIPA, CDA, COPA, etc.) with hundreds of legal documents, as well as the text and interpretation of all US state and federal laws involving filtering.
-- Filter Effectiveness Tests page (http://filteringfacts.org/research/filter-tests/ )
A comprehensive index of nearly 100 individual product tests conducted by testing labs, organizations, or affiliated researchers.
-- Research and Policy Papers page (http://filteringfacts.org/research/papers/ )
A comprehensive index of over 100 research, policy, and legal papers on filtering software created by government entities, filtering companies, advocacy groups, academic publications, and other organizations.
-- Filter Reviews page (http://filteringfacts.org/research/filter-reviews/ )
A comprehensive index of published filtering product reviews since 1995, including over 200 individual product reviews.
-- Filtering page (http://filteringfacts.org/filtering/ )
Extensive information about filtering companies, past as well as present, their products and databases.
