This is not harmless chatting but rather child exploitation.
Among these misunderstandings is a belief that an institution will lose all federal funding if it does not block all potentially inappropriate sites to the fullest extent practicable, or that the Supreme Court decision authorized mandatory filtering for adults and youths alike.
This is why the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has filed an amicus brief for a court case in Georgia stating that it should not be legal to “talk dirty” to a child.
The Georgia Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on February 22regarding this First Amendment challenge to a Georgia statute criminalizing obscene Internet contact with a child.
JUSTICE STEVENS delivered the opinion of the Court.
At issue is the constitutionality of two statutory provisions enacted to protect minors from "indecent" and "patently offensive" communications on the Internet.
