ASACP Travels to Washington for State of the Mobile Net Conference

LOS ANGELES (May 25, 2011) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) will be represented at a major Internet policy forum to be held in Washington on May 26.

According to its promoters, the 3rd Annual State of the Mobile Net Conference (www.netcaucus.org/conference/2011/sotmn/) will illuminate how a vast ecosystem of technologies, content and applications come together to make the Internet more mobile.
Working to assure informed decision-making, the conference explores both the promise and challenges facing this exciting phenomenon. Hosted by the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee (ICAC), this widely attended event includes a diverse range of viewpoints that provide a fair and balanced forum for Internet-related discussion that does not promote any particular policy position. Conference sponsors include Comcast, Google, Microsoft and VeriSign, among others.

“For ASACP, attending events such as the State of the Mobile Net Conference is a vital part of our governmental outreach program,” stated the association’s Interim Director, Tim Henning, a digital forensics expert. “These sessions are valuable venues to showcase the RTA for Mobile Apps solution that was developed by ASACP as a way for mobile content providers to help prevent children from accessing age-restricted material.”

Henning will be in Washington for three days, participating in a series of meetings in addition to the conference’s main events.

“ASACP’s participation is also a poignant way of demonstrating the adult entertainment industry’s commitment to proactive self-regulation, in an arena where lawmakers and decision-makers are reached,” Henning added. “These efforts are only possible through the industry’s generous financial support — through the sponsorships, memberships and donations from adult entertainment’s leading companies.”
