US - ISPs sign nationwide deal to ban child porn

The vast majority of internet service providers in the US have signed up to a pact to ban child pornography from being viewed online. All cable providers in the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) have singed up to the pact, which will mean they block sites listed as carrying child pornography held by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). see NCTA Press Release.
