Congress targets social network sites, By Declan McCullagh, CNET News.com, May 10, 2006.
A proposed federal law (“Deleting Online Predators Act, or DOPA”) would effectively require most schools and libraries to limit access to Web sites that let users create public “Web pages or profiles” and also offer a discussion board, chat room, or e-mail service. The measure would affect Blogger.com, AOL and Yahoo’s instant-messaging features. According to an email sent by McCullagh, the legislation would also affect Slashdot.org and blog sites that permit comments.
