Thursday, September 7, 2006
It's been three years since the Supreme Court upheld the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), which requires libraries with certain federal aid to "protect against access" to visual depictions of child pornography, obscenity, and material "harmful to minors." Should the library block MySpace? This webcast will fill you in on important post-CIPA developments that may affect your library's Internet use policies—including what the courts have said about the clash between the public's rights of free speech and employee rights to be free from sexual harassment.
