Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) Ruling

By United States District Court For The Eastern District Of Pennsylvania
Free
Book Description

This is an important ruling for Project Gutenberg, in that it removes the necessity for US libraries to run filtering software as had been ordered by the CIPA legislation. PG doesn't usually distribute legislation and rulings, but in this case it seemed worthwhile. At 195 pages, the ruling is an extensive and informed look at Internet use and censorship.

    • Section 1721(b) of CIPA imposes conditions on a library's participation in the E-rate program. A library "having one or more computers with Internet access may not receive services at discount rates," CIPA Sec. 1721(b) (codified at 47 U.S.C. Sec. 254(h)(6)(A)(i)), unless the library certifies that it is "enforcing a policy of Internet safety that includes the operation of a technology protection measure with respect to any of its computers with Internet access that protects against access through such computers to visual depictions that are – (I) obscene; (II) child pornography; or (III) harmful to minors," and that it is "enforcing the operation of such technology protection measure during any use of such computers by minors." CIPA Sec. 1721(b) (codified at 47 U.S.C. Sec. 254(h)(6)(B)). CIPA defines a "technology protection measure" as "a specific technology that blocks or filters access to visual depictions that are obscene, . . . child pornography, . . . or harmful to minors." CIPA Sec. 1703(b)(1) (codified at 47 U.S.C. Sec. 254(h)(7)(I)).
