Mike Fisher, Pennsylvania's attorney general, has sent letters to an
unknown number of ISPs over the past few months demanding that the ISPs
block Pennsylvania subscribers' access to at least 423 websites or face a
$5,000 fine, according to news reports.

this is a very old article...


How the blocks will affect law enforcement across North America would
depend on which ISP their departments are using, among other factors. But
Morris pointed out that WorldCom was ordered by a judge to comply with the
Pennsylvania law last September. WorldCom owns UUNet, and the U.S.
government is one of UUNet's biggest customers.

That was a ccourt order, not much any US based corporation can do about
that, eh? Oh, yeah, and it didn't help stop any child pornographers, all
it did was hide their tracks from the authorities :(
