The Child Online Protection Act Ruled Unconstitutional

The Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals [opinion] upheld a lower court ruling striking down the Child Online Protection Act (COPA) which required Web operators to restrict access to large amounts of constitutionally protected speech. In its ruling the court said COPA "cannot withstand a strict scrutiny, vagueness, or overbreadth analysis and thus is unconstitutional." Hat tip to Mark Giangrande (DePaul), Tech Law Prof Blog. [JH]
