Legislation to Protect Children on the Web

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 6, 2003

From the Washington Post, this timely article, Primer: Children, The Internet and Pornography, tracks the checkered past six years of laws specifically intended to protect children on the Web. Unfortunately, no links to the enacted laws and proposed legislation are provided, so here they are: the Children’s Internet Protection Act; the Child Online Protection Act; the PROTECT Act of 2003; the Communications Decency Act; the Child Pornography Prevention Act; the Child Obscenity and Pornography Prevention Act of 2002; the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998; and the Child Modeling Exploitation Prevention Act.
