Legislation Could Put Internet Pornography In Its Place

Posted August 15, 2002

— A Wake County grandmother trying to keep children away from pornography on the Internet is celebrating a small victory.

The Family Privacy Protection Act of 2002 has been introduced in the United States Senate.

The legislation calls for Web sites containing material harmful to minors to operate under a domain like ".xxx" instead of ".com."

Mary Conyers' granddaughter pulled up a porn site by mistyping the address.

Conyers began a letter-writing campaign, seeking support for porn to be moved to its own domain.

A similar measure has failed before.
