Marjorie Heins on NTIA CIPA (censorware law) report

Marjorie Heins at the Free Expression Policy Project has excellent commentary concerning the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) CIPA censorware report

On August 15, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce, released a report that reads like a sales pitch for Internet filters.

I agree completely. I've thought of writing an NTIA report piece myself. But this where my poor power level and the lying endemic to politics, has baleful effects.

Now, rebutting this report isn't a legal risk problem (I think ...). But I simply don't want the stress of going through getting trashed because I can't fight back. It's just not worth it for me.
