Re[2]: Communications Decency Act (CDA) and the SCA

     Greetings, all.
     Am I missing something about the CDA? I thought said Act had to do 
     with: 1) sexually explicit materials and 2) public availability to 
     Frankly, no one has taken away your right to privately post whatever 
     you damn well please.
     And checking the content of a private post is tantamount to opening 
     your private mail. Nasty business without a court order.
     Enforcement beyond that I would think: 1) absurd, 2) criminal, 3) 
     unconstitutional, and 4) impossible...in increasing degree of effort 
     (or insanity as the case may be.)
     Of course, I may have missed something. What do you think, Yaakov?
     ps. It does bring up an interesting problem. If you post something on 
     a bulletin board in NYC and someone looks in from Omaha, whose 
     standards of 'decency' apply? Reader or poster? Wouldn't you just love 
     to be on the 'Big Bench' when that one hits?  8^)

Greetings from Ian,
 I know that Ioseph gave me permission to distribute his songbooks
to people in the SCA for free up till the CDA was passed.  Then I am no 
longer able to electronically transfer any of them that have the fun 
stuff in them :-)   Personnally I hate the idea that someone has the 
right to tell me that I cannot send these to friends over the internet 
(referring to the CDA not Ioseph).
 I guess we will just have to do a lot more of it the old
fashioned way and actually mail them direct or heaven forbid :-) we 
actually sing them to each other...
