Child Porn on Internet

Investigators say they are racing to keep up with an explosion of child pornography made possible by computer networks. They say the Internet makes creating and circulating sexually-explicit material easier than ever. Congress has tried to help law enforcement in its crackdown by passing a new law that expands the definition of child pornography. But NPR's Barbara Bradley reports that civil libertarians say the law infringes on the constitutional protection of free speech.
