United States v. American Library Ass'n
In United States v. American Library Ass'n, 539 U.S. 194 (2003), a plurality opinion for the U.S. Supreme Court held that Congress could place anti-pornography restrictions on acceptance of its funding for internet assistance programs:
- "Especially because public libraries have traditionally excluded pornographic material from their other collections, Congress could reasonably impose a parallel limitation on its Internet assistance programs. As the use of filtering software helps to carry out these programs, it is a permissible condition under Rust."
