Judge Rules Protecting Children from Sexually Explicit Material is Parents' Responsibility

RESCUECOM Recommends Parents Take Precautions To Protect Children From

Objectionable Online Content

SYRACUSE, N.Y., March 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Senior U.S.

District Judge Lowell Reed Jr. in a decision today struck down as

"unconstitutional" the 1998 U.S. Law (Child Online Protection Act) that

makes it a crime for commercial Web site operators to let children access

"harmful" material, as "too broad."

Commenting on the ruling, David A. Milman, CEO of the national

independent computer repair company RESCUECOM, indicated, "For many

parents, their children know as much if not more about their computers than

they do. However, this decision puts the burden squarely on parents to take

action to protect their children."

RESCUECOM recommends parents take the following five precautions to

make sure their children are safe:

-- Use Internet content filtering software such as the Net Nanny,

CyberPatrol or RESCUECOM Internet Security Suite.

-- Locate your home computer(s) in the family room, living room or

otherwise open area in your home.

-- Limit the amount of time your children spend online.

-- Educate your children to the dangers of online threats in the same

manner you would about the dangers of talking to strangers.

-- Make sure your Windows automatic updates are turned on and your

content filters are up to date.

"Now more than ever it is vital to make sure our children are protected

and that the computers in our homes have the proper filters and warning

systems against harmful content...and this protection is easy to put in

place," Milman said.

Milman is available to discuss this issue, provide tips for consumers,

and speculate on the future of protecting kids from harmful materials and

the cost of doing nothing. Those interested should contact RESCUECOM

marketing director Josh R. Kaplan at 315.263.7178 or via email at
