House panel approves crackdown on child pornography

{mosads}Unlike a similar bill authored by Smith last year, the Child Pornography Prevention Act does not include a provision that requires Internet service providers to store user data for 18 months. That data-retention provision stoked concerns from privacy groups.

Chris Calabrese, a legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington office, applauded the change to the anti-child-porn bill, saying the lack of a data retention measure is “a good thing.” 

No amendments were adopted to the bill on Tuesday, according to a committee spokesman.
