Utah Joins Porn Fight

Utah's government created the Utah Child Protection Registry (CPR) to limit children's exposure to pornographic material. However, the Free Speech Coalitions (FSC), a porn industry trade organization, brought suit against the Registry May 6, seeking to enjoin enforcement of the CPR.

The Registry allows Utah residents to place their family's e-mail addresses, instant messenger IDs, mobile phone numbers and fax numbers on a list to which companies are barred from sending messages and advertisements for pornography. According to CPR, more than 150,000 addresses of Utah's citizens are protected under the law.
