Reply Comments in FCC's "Child Safe Viewing Act" Notice of Inquiry
(previous | next)

As I mentioned in a post last month, dozens of comments were filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as part of the agency's "Child Safe Viewing Act" Notice of Inquiry. Again, this proceeding was required under the "Child Safe Viewing Act of 2007," which Congress passed last year and President Bush signed last December. The goal of the bill and the FCC's proceeding (MB 09-26) is to study "advanced blocking technologies" that "may be appropriate across a wide variety of distribution platforms, including wired, wireless, and Internet platforms." I filed 150+ pages worth of comments in this matter, and here's my analysis of why this bill and the FCC's proceeding are worth monitoring closely.

Anyway, this week saw many of the same groups that filed before (and some new ones) file reply comments about those earlier submissions. To make things simple, I have collected most of the notable reply comments down below in case anyone is interested.
