ABC Nightline report on teen porn addiction; -- could that bring back a call for COPA-like laws?

Late Halloween night (really, into “All Saints Day”), ABC Nightline presented the issue of teen “porn addiction” that starts on the Internet, and often moves to access through mobile devices.
One problem is that the porn often emphasizes violent or quirky images, that are far removed from the world of “real life relationships”. 
  
  
The story is at least relevant to the idea of “protecting” minors. 
  
Physiological studies show certain areas of the brain being stimulated in visual or behavior addictions.  That’s still not substance addiction.
  
But reports like this could open up calls for COPA-like laws to be reconsidered in the future.
