Three ISPs Agree to Block Child Porn

Goobergunch writes "The New York Times reports that Sprint, Time Warner, and Verizon have agreed to block websites and newsgroups containing child pornography. The deal, brokered by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, occurred after Cuomo's office threatened the ISPs with fraud charges. While child pornography may be disgusting, one wonders what kind of precedent this sets?"

Broadcasters want to eliminate their competition [] and will be very happy with the new "child porn" block ability. They really do hate your freedom. We can only hope for court protection, but the supreme court of the US has been supremely compliant lately.
