Abstract

This article examines the First Amendment issues associated with Internet regulation, specifically the Communications Decency Act of 1996 and discusses the district court opinion in ACLU v. Reno. The author considers existing legislation in the telecommunications industry and the effect of such legislation on First Amendment rights. In additions, the author contends that the Internet is a revolutionary medium that should remain free of government intrusion. Therefore, due to the impossibility of regulating the Internet and the value that society places on the free exchange of ideas, the CDA should not be upheld by the United States Supreme Court.
