All we’re asking is that in addition to their standard Internet services, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in theUnited States be required to provide subscribers access to the Internet that excludes hard-core violence and pornography, in compliance with existing federal obscenity laws (as specifically defined in Title 18 of federal law). An ISP would still be allowed to freely offer its standard non-filtered Internet commercial versions. We need safe access to the Internet that is free of hardcore, inappropriate material if we so choose. It’s time to do right by our children and grandchildren!
The Safe Internet Petition Movement. It’s time for a Safe National Internet alternative!Hi, I’m Scott Cooper. I’m a northern California-based youth advocate. I’ve had experience on education and drug boards, and as a city youth commissioner (with previous experience in teaching, coaching and as a bilingual aide). I’ve also written a few national books on bullying and other difficult social issues that young people face, and have lectured extensively on these topics. In recent years, I’ve become completely convinced that as a society we are making a dangerous mistake by allowing our children to be raised on an easily-accessed diet of Internet-based hard-core rape, child sexual abuse, and violence. I hope you’ll have the sense of urgency to join me in signing this petition in support of a Children’s Online Safety Act (“COSA”)! And I hope you’ll share the petition by means of Facebook and other social media. The petition link is: Safe Internet Petition
