CDA: Communication Decency Act

CDA is an abbreviation of the "Communication Decency Act".

It is a legislation act also called Title V of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1996. Its main objective is to control and manage pornography material on the internet, in response to concerns about minor’s access over the internet by imposing criminal sanctions on any person who intentionally sends out or broadcast offensive speeches, messages or materials that are obscene or indecent on the internet under some specific situations or conditions.

In 1997, U.S. Supreme Court judges found that the anti-indecency provisions of the 1996 Communications Decency Act (CDA) violating the freedom of speech protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union landmark case. The American Civil Liberties Union expressed diverging views that some specific sections of the act were facially unconstitutional and attempted to obtain a prior ban or advance restriction by intercepting the U.S Supreme Court from implementing and inflicting those provisions; the decision was declared by the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of the American Civil Liberties Union without any further statement.
