SINCE THIS EVENT OCCURRED, THE CDA HAS BASICALLY BEEN REVERSED.
On February 8th, 1996, President Clinton of the United States signed into legislation what's commonly referred to as the Communications Decency Act (CDA). The CDA includes a provision which limits freedom of expression on the Internet. With this act, the very same materials which today are legally available in book stores and libraries could be illegal if posted on World Wide Web sites or Usenet newsgroups.
The Coalition to Stop Net Censorship is asking everyone, everywhere to show just how many people will be affected by the CDA legislation, the implications behind it, and other legistation regarding the Internet.
