(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) has declared today "Label with RTA" Day.
ASACP urges all adult sites that have not yet adopted its RTA ("Restricted to Adults") website label to do so. The organization also asks supporters to help spread the word to other companies and webmasters. Adult pay sites can contact their affiliates and encourage them to use the tag, while companies that provide billing, hosting, design and other services can make the same pitch to their clients. ASACP can even provide a sample email that can be sent to affiliates.
Between 12 Noon and 2:00 Pm Pacific time, ASACP staff will field questions about the RTA label during a mini-forum on the GFY Webmasters Board.
There is already legislation pending in Congress that requires mandatory labeling by adult websites, but publicly demonstrating that the adult industry is capable of self-regulation can head that off. The RTA label offers a chance for adult sites to do just that. Plus, while a new law would only affect companies in the United States, the RTA label is already being adopted internationally.
The RTA label has been endorsed by major adult companies, industry attorneys and the Free Speech Coalition. The tag has also been incorporated by numerous parental filtering products and services. These include CleanInternet.com, ContentProtect, CSWeb, Cyber Sentinel, FamiLink, FilterGate, iShield, Kidsnet (and all of BluePrint Data’s other Internet Filtering products), Net Nanny, Netsweeper, ParentalControl Bar, ScreenShield and SurfSafely.com.
Complete information about the RTA label and how to use it is available at www.RTAlabel.org.
