FCC Backs Off Net Filtering Plan

FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has said that he will not pursue a government-mandated content filter as part of a proposal for a nationwide free wireless broadband network. EPIC had opposed the provision and said that it would create a dangerous precedent that would encourage governments to limit access to unpopular or controversial speech. For more information on content filters, see the EPIC publication "Filters and Freedom" available at Powell's and Amazon
