While I'm generally supportive of this statement, I would like to see the phrase "labeled for content or" changed to something like "labeled for objectionable/mature content." Some labeling is truly benign, like labeling items as sci-fi or mystery. While I don't believe that ALA would go after anyone for doing simple genre labeling, I could see it having a chilling effect in some libraries.

I see my concerns are addressed by the Labeling and Rating Systems. I withdraw my previous statement.
