Short Take: Enforcement of Child Online Protection Act delayed

Enforcement of the Child Online Protection Act (COPA) is being halted until at least January 21, 1999, according to lawyers who sued the government to overturn the law, which was passed in October. Last month, a federal judge temporarily halted the law, which makes it a crime for commercial Web sites to give minors access to "harmful material."
