The Washington Post reports that a federal judge in Philadelphia has ruled against a 1998 law that makes it a crime for operators of Internet sites to let anyone under 17 have access to sexual material, rebuffing the government’s argument that software filters are ineffective and upholding earlier rulings that the law infringed on free-speech rights.

Reuters (and several other outlets) reports that the FCC has decided to get involved in the net neutrality debate by initiating an inquiry into the issue.
