Adult Industry Leader Delivers COPA Testimony

Richmond, VA, July 20, 2000 Today, SexTracker™ CEO, Andrew Edmond, will testify before the Child Online Protection Act (COPA) Commission. At 27, Edmond is the first in the Adult Industry invited to deliver testimony on Labeling, Filtering, and Content Rating policy before the commission. Says Edmond, "The evident problems of filtering deal directly with the First Amendment and constitutionality of filtering in our diverse ethnic, social, and religious American society, with an ethical diffusion of influences in our culture. A standard filtering system imposed by government or an oligarchy of corporate systems is inevitably unconstitutional." Edmond will also speak about iQcheck™, short for Internet Quality Check, a product SexTracker created to police illegal content on their hub of over 120,000 Adult sites. URL for Edmond's testimony is: http://www.copacommission.org/meetings/hearing2/agenda.shtml.

The Child Online Protection Act (COPA) was passed in October 1998, prohibiting online sites from providing sexually explicit material accessible to minors. The Act was challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in ACLU vs. Reno, on First Amendment clauses and prevented from enforcement by a preliminary injunction by Justice Stevens of Philadelphia. Currently awaiting a decision from the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, the Act called for a commission to examine methods and technology to protect children from accessing Adult pornography and child pornography. The Commission's findings will be officially presented to Congress in November of 2000.
