"Day Of Protest" Against Net Censorship

Send Article to a Friend

"Day Of Protest" Against Net Censorship -- The Electronic Frontier Foundation - in conjunction with the ACLU, the Center for Democracy and Technology, and a host of other groups - is organizing a national day of protest on 12-Dec-95 in an effort to derail legislation before the U.S. Congress regarding the regulation of content on the Internet. If passed, the legislation would hold online service providers criminally liable for material passing through their sites that is deemed "indecent" - a notably (and historically) vague term. Though widely believed to place unconstitutional restrictions on free speech, the legislation could significantly alter the nature of Internet access and use in the United States. [GD]
