Abstract

Activists are pleased that the CDA went down. In this rant, I worry over the politics of what might rise up in its place. One target of this attack is PICS (Platform for Internet Content Selection.) PICS is a regulator, this essay argues. As with any regulator, we need to be careful about the politics of its rules.
