What is Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)?
The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires that K-12 schools and libraries use Internet filters and implement other measures to protect children from harmful online content as a condition for the receipt of certain federal funding, especially E-rate funds. It was signed into law on 21 December 2000 and was found to be constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court on 23 June 2003. CIPA is one of a number of bills that the United States Congress proposed to limit children’s exposure to pornography and explicit content online. Both of Congress’s earlier attempts at restricting indecent Internet content, the Communications Decency Act and the Child Online Protection Act, were held to be unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court on First Amendment grounds.
