The Internet landscape has changed drastically since the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) took effect in 2000. While the law requires schools and public libraries to block or filter Internet access to pictures and material that are “obscene, child pornography, or harmful to minors” on computers that are used by students under the age of 17, this leaves room for interpretation. The controversy around over-blocking and over-filtering is rising as schools and parents wrestle with the law and guidance from the FCC. However, students are the ones that are suffering the most as they are unable to access crucial learning or research materials.
