Monday 13 March 1995
If you want to protest against the Communications Decency Act, which the US Congress is considering, now is the time to join an electronic petition.
Copies of a document headed "Protect the Internet. Read this message" are appearing all over the Net. This tells you what the act would do - prohibit "obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy or indecent" language from being carried over the telephone network. It also tells you why this is so dangerous: service providers will be made responsible for policing everything they make available; in short, the entire Internet (which has plenty that is obscene, lewd etc on it).
The deadline for the petition, which non-Americans are encouraged to sign, is 15 March. If you cannot find the document, e-mail Jonah Seiger at firstname.lastname@example.org
