Press Release   •   Jan 11, 2010 18:10 EST

Regina, Saskatchewan - Alena Pastuch, CEO of Idendego, a developer and marketer of advanced personal and business online protection software programs, takes time to review lawsuits that challenge the safety of Children online. The lawsuit challenging the Child Online Protection Act began nearly ten years ago, following the Supreme Court's invalidation of Congress' first attempt to censor the Internet, the Communications Decency Act. The Supreme Court denied the last appeal of the Government from an Appeals Court decision that turned down the enforcement of the Child Online Protection Act (COPA). COPA establishes criminal penalties for any online commercial distribution of material harmful to minors. The Appeals Court held COPA unconstitutional on the ground that COPA made every web communication provider abide by the most restrictive community's standards." EPIC had challenged the implementation of COPA over ten years ago and had been fighting the case along with the ACLU and the EFF. EPIC argued that COPA violated the First Amendment as well as privacy of the individual on the internet.

In today's world the Internet is an invaluable tool that almost every family has. Children can learn, research schoolwork, play games online and even chat with friends. Yet, along with these great tools, there are also many dangers online. Using Internet communication tools such as social networking, chat rooms, e-mail, and instant messaging can put children at potential risk of encountering online predators. The anonymity of the Internet means that trust and intimacy can develop quickly online. Predators take
advantage of this anonymity to build online relationships with inexperienced Children. Parents often feel that their children are aware of the dangers of predators, but in reality, they are quite naive about online relationships.

Help protect your children's privacy and safety when they're using the computer by limiting searches, blocking certain Web sites, and monitoring what your children do online. "You can help a child use online communications safely or talk to children about inappropriate Web browsing. In addition to blocking inappropriate content, it's a good idea to block sites and downloads that might be a risk to your security and privacy" says Idendego CEO Alena Pastuch.
