ISPs Urged to Fight Child Porn (yeah right, Gonzales)
April 21, 2006

U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said that Internet service providers arent doing enough to fight the child pornography traded and sold over their networks, and he plans to send Congress legislation to make sure that ISPs crack down on the industry.

During an address to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on Thursday in Alexandria, Virginia, Mr. Gonzales said that the U.S. Justice Department will propose the Child Pornography and Obscenity Prevention Amendments of 2006.


However, the DOJ has a checkered record in working with the search engines to combat child porn.

The DOJ has subpoenaed data from major search engines like Google, Yahoo, AOL, and Microsofts MSN to help revive the Child Online Protection Act (COPA), which was struck down by the courts.

Google initially resisted the subpoena but later agreed to a scaled-down request (see Google Makes Deal with DoJ and Judge Limits US Data Hunt).

The accession by the other search engines to the DOJs wide-ranging information request for millions of search terms also attracted concerns from civil liberties groups (see Portals Gave Data to DoJ).

1. Whats really funny is one of those government agencies that were set up to
seek out child porn sites found out something, 99% of so called child porn sites were scams. The models used were of age they just looked like young teens and pre-teens. The 1% that are real child porn are almost impossible to find as they are invite sites an without an invitation from the web master, you can't get or find the sites. The real danger are web cam chats where young people are camming behind mom and dads back.
