ACLU Joins Suit Over Mass. "Harmful" Internet Law

The American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts says it's joining a group of other organizations in a legal challenge to a new state law that was intended to ban distribution by the Internet of "matter harmful to minors." The plaintiffs said the law may have been intended to protect children from sexual predators on the Internet, but its effect was much broader, effectively banning from the Internet anything harmful to minors, including material that adults have a right to view.
