As you know from our previous Cyber Liberties Alerts, Congress is moving to dramatically restrict the free speech and privacy rights of online users. On March 23, 1995, the Senate Commerce Committee approved the Exon/Gorton bill (the so-called "Communications Decency Act", also known as S.314) as an amendment to the Telecommunications Competition and Deregulation Act of 1995. While the proposed legislation was modified to include some defenses from criminal liability for online service providers, users are still very much at risk of both massive fines and imprisonment. The ACLU has written an open letter to online providers, copied below, that urges them to wage a full-scale fight for the rights of online users. Some providers are still actively standing up for your rights while others may not be. There are still opportunities to fight the legislation in both House and Senate, but the fight will not succeed without the concerted efforts of online users, civil libertarians, and online service providers. Remember that the Senate Commerce Committee approved the Exon/Gorton amendment despite opposition letters and petition signatures from over 100,000 online users. ACT NOW: Write to your online service providers and ask them to make a public declaration against the Exon/Gorton amendment and to push aggressively for the greatest amount of free speech and privacy for online users. (A sample letter is attached.) Please copy your letter to the following e-mail address: In addition, continue to voice your opposition to the Exon/Gorton Amendment to members of the Senate Commerce Committee and your own senators. See our previous ACLU Cyber Liberties Alerts for instructions on how to reach the Senate: gopher:// ------------------------------------------------------- [COPY] An Open Letter to Online Providers Regarding the Exon/Gorton Amendment March 28, 1995 On March 23, 1995, the Senate Commerce Committee voted to violate the civil liberties of every present and future member of the online community. The so-called "Communications Decency Act" was modified to include some defenses from criminal liability -- but these are available only to online service providers. In fact, other modifications made the legislation worse for users. The Exon/Gorton amendment remains a blatant violation of the free speech and privacy guarantees of the Constitution. We therefore urge all online providers to continue (or, if necessary, to begin) a full-scale fight for the rights of online users against the government interference embodied in the Exon/Gorton amendment. The Exon/Gorton amendment subjects online users to surveillance and imposes criminal penalties for messages deemed by some government official to be "indecent, lewd, lascivious or filthy" -- all communications protected by the First Amendment. By criminalizing the content of private messages, it would invite active interference in the basic speech of everyone using a telecommunications device. The amendment was attached to the Telecommunications Competitionand Deregulation Act of 1995, which was approved by the Commerce Committee and is being sent for consideration to the Senate floor. There are still opportunities to fight the legislation in both House and Senate, but the fight will not succeed without the concerted efforts of online users, civil libertarians, and online service providers. Sexual expression has been a fundamental part of human communication from the beginning of recorded history. The online community is no different. There is no question that talk about sex and the exchange of sexual images has contributed to the vibrant quality of online communications, and an increasing number of online subscribers. And Congress need not ban constitutionally protected forms of speech in order to protect children from sexually explicit materials. Interactive technologies allow users -- including concerned parents -- to have more control over content than any previous communications medium. Many of the traditional arguments for restricting sexually expressive material, such as radio/TV's assault on unwilling listeners or the fear that a child will wander into an adult bookstore, simply do not apply to interactive technologies. Moreover, the Exon/Gorton amendment's censorial sweep encompasses content that has nothing to do with sex -- anything deemed "indecent" or "filthy" -- subjective terms that could apply to any message outside the mainstream. The amendment would make the online community one of the most censored segments of communications media when logic dictates that it should be the least censored. The Exon/Gorton amendment also subjects an industry that has blossomed without government control to an unprecedented amount of interference and intrusion. We applaud those online providers who have both publicly declared their opposition to the Exon/Gorton amendment and who continue to fight for the constitutional rights of their subscribers. These providers recognize that no one in the online community will benefit from an amendment that seriously threatens the free flow of information and the diversity of content transmitted over online networks. To achieve the liberating potential of the information superhighway, Congress must ensure that interactive technologies enhance rather than stifle democratic values like user choice. We therefore call upon ALL online service providers to join online users and civil libertarians in the fight against the Exon/Gorton amendment. We urge online service providers to make a public declaration against the amendment and to push aggressively for the greatest amount of free speech and privacy for online users. American Civil Liberties Union "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty" ------------------------------------------------ SAMPLE LETTER Dear [name of each of your online service providers]: I am writing, as a user of your service, to urge you to make a public declaration against the Exon/Gorton amendment to the Telecommunications Competition and Deregulation Act of 1995. While providing defenses from criminal liability for online providers, the Exon proposal leaves online users at risk of large fines and imprisonment for constitutionally protected speech. I urge you to: *Make a public declaration against the Exon proposal. *Aggressively lobby the Senate to vote against the Exon proposal, and aggressively lobby to prevent similar proposals in the House version of the telecommunications reform legislation. *Continue to push for the greatest amount of free speech and privacy for online users. Sincerely, [name] ----------------------------------------------- The American Civil Liberties Union is a nationwide, nonpartisan organization of over 275,000 members. Now in its 75th year, the ACLU is devoted exclusively to protecting the civil liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, whereever these liberties are at risk -- in a bookstore, in school, on the street, in cyberspace, wherever.

Ivey James Lay, 29, and Frank Ronald Stanton, 22, were part of a ring that stole credit card numbers from MCI, where Lay was an employee, the government said. Lay was sentenced Friday to 3 years and 2 months in prison; Stanton was sentenced to one year. The credit-card numbers were used to charge long-distance calls to computer bulletin-board systems and computer chat lines. They were part of a group that bought and sold at least 50,000 numbers from 1992 until the summer of 1994. ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 27 Mar 1995 15:00:43 -0800 From: leej@ELWHA.EVERGREEN.EDU Subject: File 4--writing project on Pacific Northwest hackers Dear Editors, I'm a fourth year student at Evergreen State College and am looking for hackers who would like to participate in an ethnography or oral interview project. The program I'm in is called "True Stories and how they are told" and the project is worth 8 quarter credit hours. I'm currently looking to interview 4 to 8 people who live in Western Washington and are accessible by bus (obviously, I don't have a car). I'm interested in those who do not identify themselves with the media stereotype of the teenage (Elvira skinned) boy who is allergic to sunlight. The interviews can last from one to four hours and I can sign anominity forms if desired. As a woman, I'd like to interview at least one woman hacker but realize that the overwhelming majority are male. Originally, I had written editor Emmanuel Goldstein (at "2600") for help but his spring issue has already gone out and I was unable to put in a reader ad for my project. Participants may talk about anything of concern to them including their families, philosphy, privacy, and favorite color. If you know of anyone who would be interested (and who is a regular reader of "2600"), please let me know how I can contact them, or you may give them my e-mail address at "". If you have any questions or know of other groups (including BBS) that I can contact, please let me know.

Mailing List WANTED: Participants for a mailing list. 20-30 individuals who enjoy trouble shooting issues for the sake of doing it. Specifically I would like to find individuals interested in Government, Sociology, Politics, Law, Economics, and Business. These are just interest areas, you do not have to be an expert in these fields (I'm not). Just be a 'thinker' and have an interest in what we are trying to accomplish. PROJECT: To debate, discuss and author a document to be published on the WWW. This document will be a more or less academic project to create a Constitution for governing a country in todays cultural, technical, economic, etc environment, with the goal of creating a Constitution that would have staying power far into the future. All participants will be given credit for authoring and it will (should) be a fun project. Finally, this is a study, not a revolutionary document in any way. I am not interested in anybody who would use this project to forward any political agenda. When/if the project is complete I think it would be fun to run some case studies based on real news events to test practicality and to generally see how good of job we did. SCOPE: This document will primarily be philosophical. I want to start out at the most fundamental definitions of what government should be. As interest and our whims take us we could cover Criminal Law, Business Law, Cultural issues, Trade, External Relations, ad infinitum. INTERESTED?: Please send an email to (if you see this on a usenet newsgroup I WILL NOT be checking these groups for responses YOU MUST EMAIL ME). In this email please include your name, email address, why you are interested in this project, and how your interests apply to this project. I am planning to begin list serving the first week of April with the question what should be the fundamental goal of government, and verification of and additions to (?) the inalienable rights as currently documented. Once this forum is started it will be a closed discussion with new members added by invitation only. If you are interested respond NOW. ME: As an avid science fiction fan and trouble shooter I have always been interested in how s/f writers handled the governments of the future. During some recent studies I have been wondering how our government will apply our current constitution to current technological trends in communications (ie, the net). History has shown (IMHO) that major changes in communication have always proven significant to government. I am interested in discussion on how much our current government (and the government of the near future) is equiped via our Constitution and current policies to deal with this new communication medium where a very real culture is being formed and laws cannot be so readily enforcable due to cultural/legal differences. IF THIS SOUNDS INTERESTING TO YOU PLEASE RESPOND, I THINK THIS COULD BE A LOT OF FUN AND MAY EVEN BE ABLE VIA OUR TEXT TO OPEN SOME EYES TO ISSUES THAT WILL BE FORTHCOMING IN OUR EVOLUTION AS A TECHNO SOCIETY/CULTURE. IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS DON'T HESITATE TO EMAIL ME AT Thanks for your time, Gerald D. Anderson ------------------------------------------------------------ Gerald D.

Telepoetics is a direct cultural link built upon low cost video conferencing technology. Poets and performers exchange their art between two distant sites to form an artistic communion across cultural and geographic borders. Although videophones are used regularly across the world, the technology is still expensive. The Telepoetics group use basic and cheap video technology to join sites for cultural exchanges, the quality may not be as good as the top of the range systems seen elsewhere, but it has the advantage of being within the reach of the poets who've built the Telepoetics events heretofore in Canada and the US, and in reach of the general public. For a deeper background on the Telepoetics movement, visit Kurt Heintz's homepage on the World Wide Web. * What is Cafelink? Cafelink is a recently formed organisation which brings together Internet cafes, video experts and anyone involved in communication worldwide. Our aim is to foster links with groups such as Telepoetics, using the Internet and other communication technologies to bring together these geographically diverse sites and encourage exposure to other cultures. Contact: * What is the Poetry Video Festival? Organized in Chicago in 1991, the National Poetry Video Festival has showcased poetry in electronic media on an ever-widening program. Each year poetry videos are gathered, juried, and screened before broader audiences. This year, the Festival will showcase numerous works of poets and media artists from the United States and Canada ( its first "international" screening ), and continues its commitment to literate video produced by and for young people.
