PICS is not a rating system, but an Internet protocol to allow ratings to be transferred and
understood across the Internet.
PICS support is now included in Internet software and browsers.  Basically, PICS allows content
providers to rate their pages and parents to set passwords and levels for their children.  Then,
PICS compliant software/browsers will read the settings and use the ratings to filter content that
is not desired.
