LIBRARY HEADING BACK TO COURT IN INTERNET PORN CASE

NCRL Webmaster - Tuesday, October 11, 2011

The North Central Regional Library, headquartered in Wenatchee, is heading back to Federal Court on October 25, 2011 for oral argument on summary judgment motions in light of the ruling in favor of the library by the Washington State Supreme Court.

The 5 county rural library district is defending itself in a case brought against it by the Seattle based ACLU.   The library’s 28 branches use an internet filter to meet federal requirements and make collection decisions about internet content.   The library filters the internet narrowly including pornography and gambling categories. The library uses the filter as a first line of defense in controlling illegal internet activity.   The ACLU wants the library to remove the filter.

According to Dean Marney, Director, “If we take the filter off there is nothing between us and someone who wants to use a library computer to access child pornography or other illegal and inappropriate material.   We are a publicly funded institution.   Our mission is to promote reading and lifelong learning.  It is crazy to think that we should be required to use tax dollars to allow open access to internet pornography or to become illegal casinos.  Removing the filter is unfair to the people who support our community libraries, jeopardizes the safety of kids, and creates a hostile environment for our patrons and employees.”

The North Central Regional Library district is the largest library district in the state serving Chelan, Douglas, Ferry, Grant, and Okanogan counties.

Hey there! Quicfk question that's entirely off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
I'm trying to find a theme or pplugin that might
be able to fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Thank you!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my
own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?

I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100%
certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Kudos

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several websites for
about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts
into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?

My site has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is
popping it up all over the internet without my permission.
Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being
stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
