For its part, the government says the law was intended to apply to pornographic websites, not news sites. It also argues COPA's age restrictions would work with content filters.
A while back someone tried to pass a law for adult sites to rename there website to .xxx at the end. If they did not change there site to .xxx they would get sued. Filters would have easily be able to block those sites without blocking good sites. To think right now we use word filters that sometimes block good sites.

Basically that means we can remove that "Are you over 13?" question.

But wouldn't people under 13 then have to lie about their ages just to enter this forum?

Presumably because the law that makes them has been overturned.

I always thought that whole "over 13" thing was pretty stupid anyway. Glad to see it's been taken care of.

Now, while it wasn't really effective, let's think here.

That involves monitoring new people. While the COPPA thing didn't deter many people, it did deter a few, I'm sure.

Hah, that's just great. It's good to see this kind of stuff in a country that half the law-abiding population is all for gun-bans.

Neat. In fact I lied on my age before i saw this topic. But the idea of putting .XXX at the end of the site name was a good idea, IMO. *shrugs*
anyway, I'm off on a banana.wad quest. Anyway, Shoopacrabra304, out.

COPA =/= COPPA

COPA requires websites with adult content to verify ages in order to distribute material. This is what the article refers to.

COPPA requires children to be 13 to distrubute information over the Internet. This was NOT what the article refers to.

...Do I win yet?
