The Supreme Court rules against a law intended to keep pornography away from children using the Internet. The court ruled 5-4 that the 1998 Child Online Protection Act likely violates the First Amendment, citing less restrictive alternatives such as filtering software. The case now returns to an appeals court for further review. NPR's Nina Totenberg reports.
