Communications Decency Act (CDA) and Reno v. ACLU

Communications Decency Act (CDA)- a US law designed and enacted to protect minors from indecent and obscene communications - was addressed in Reno v. ACLU 521 US 844 (1997) when the US Supreme Court in a unanimous opinion declared CDA's anti-obscenity and anti-indecency provisions to be unconstitutional, as these affected the rights of adults in addition to curbing obscenity and indecency.
