May The Child Online Protection Act Rely On Community Standards To Identify Material That Is Harmful To Minors?, Susanna Frederick Fischer

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

The Communications Decency Act, the government's previous attempt to protect minors from online pornography, was struck down in 1997 on the grounds that it required Internet content to be judged by the standards of the community most likely to be offended by it. Now the Court has agreed to review the constitutionality of the new Child Online Protection Act, which seeks to address the Court's free-speech concerns by regulating Web communications in a manner similar to existing laws restricting minors' access to print pornography.

Fcc V. Schreiber: In Camera And The Administrative Agency, Harvey L. Zuckman

Obtaining protection for business secrets in an agency proceeding is at best an imperfect art. The lack of any uniform rule and the confusion and delay which result from an ad hoc approach are highlighted by FCC v. Schreiber. The authors examine the current state of the law in light of the Schreiber decision and point up the present inequities. Their conclusion is that the situation can only be remedied by enactment of regulatory in camera procedures for all federal agencies. A model for such a regulation is appended to the article.
