President Clinton signed into law The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) in December 2000. CIPA requires that public libraries receiving certain federal funds have to: adopt Internet safety polices and use mandatory filtering software to block Internet access for children and adults to websites or software that is obscene, contain child pornography or are by any means harmful to minors (, 20). In May 2002, the U.S District Court of Philadelphia said that CIPA was unconstitutional and sought legal actions and won. CIPA’s requirement that libraries enforce Internet safety policies has yet to be challenged and remains the same. The federal government filed an appeal towards the U.S. District Court of Philadelphia’s decision. The case was heard by the U.S. Supreme Court in March 2003. The Supreme Court reversed the lower court’s ruling and upheld the federal law on June 23, 2003 (, 20).
These are just two little examples of the Acts that are being passed in order to protect individuals in America. It is a scary thought that people can monitor our actions while surfing the web, let alone those actions of minors, including individual’s children. Thankfully we have Acts that prohibit such actions from occurring.
