Aggressive enforcement of current laws (child pornography, obscenity, child stalking laws) Close loopholes in the law (COPA) Extend laws that protect children and unconsenting adults in the physical world to the cyberworld NOTE: The public and the technology industry should not have to shoulder the burden to protect kids from illegal content and activity Law Enforcement:  Law Enforcement The public and the technology industry should not have to shoulder the burden to protect kids from illegal content and activity…. This is solely the role of law enforcement The Justice Department has not prosecuted any Internet obscenity cases Protecting Children & Families in Cyberspace…. :  Protecting Children andamp; Families in Cyberspace…. In the history of telecommunications, both legal and illegal content has not been so easily accessible by so many children and adults with so few restrictions. A shared responsibility between the public, the technology industry and the legal community is essential. Each sector provides a critical layer of protection. IT TAKES ALL OF US WORKING TOGETHER :-)
