Short Take: Nonprofit seeks widespread mandate of filtering software

Kids Safe, a nonprofit organization that seeks to protect children from sexual crimes, has begun a lobbying campaign in an effort to convince Congress to mandate that by 1999 all computers sold in the United States have filtering software installed. The campaign started with letters sent to more than 150 legislators, including members of the Internet Caucus. The letters will be followed up with phone calls and other efforts, according to Jane Murphy Shapiro, president of Kids Safe.
