Bristol, TN – “It’s a sad day for American Families,” says Bsafe Online CEO Joe Gregory. “Once again the judicial system hasn’t stood up to unscrupulous people who are targeting children with vile and corruptible content on the Internet.”  Federal Court Justices in Philadelphia confirm what we at Bsafe Internet filters have known for years: you can’t depend on the government to protect your children.  In their ruling, the Justices say they consider filtering software to be more effective than COPA in their decision to overturn the Child Online Protection Act.

Bsafe knows no law can completely keep your family safe from the perils of pornography, on-line predators and cyber-bullies. Those who promote such online dangers are NOT law abiding citizens.  Gregory is calling for a new era in legislative initiatives “designed to address the needs of families who should have every right to access the Internet without the risk of being sucker-punched by pornographers trying to corrupt children with their filth.”  In the meantime, parents need to communicate with their children about on-line dangers and take an initiative of their own to install filtering software.

In their court ruling the Justices say, “Reliable studies show that filters are very effective at blocking potentially harmful sexually explicit materials.”  Now that a Court has deemed COPA unconstitutional, this emphasizes even more the necessity for parents to look to tools like Bsafe to protect their families.

Bsafe Online, Inc. a premier provider of Internet filtering and total Internet security, is now even better at protecting your family online. In less than 12 minutes parents can download Version 5.0 with PredAlert, which not only filters out pornography, it monitors popular instant messaging and chat rooms as well, blocking profanity from a data base of more than 1,200 key words and abbreviations.  Bsafe is equipped with an auto shut down setting that will turn off the PC after a set number of attempts of circumvent the filter and is completely tamper-proof, provided the parent controls the password.
