Are the songs indecent or obscene? Unless I missed something significant 
in the CDA, it's perfectly legal to distribute indecent material over the 
'net so long as the recipient is at least 18 and the stuff isn't being 
sent with intent to abuse, harass, etc.

Just an observation.

-Jennie, who (is occaisionally Cerdd, and) doesn't see the CDA as being 
something that's really enforcable, ie. but, officer, she typed like she 
was 18 

not to mention that I don't see the majority of it no being ruled 
unconstitutional does it ever get to a court of law
