Pennsylvania Forcing ISPs To Filter Child Porn
from the unworkable dept
Apparently, the state of Pennsylvania has passed a law saying that ISPs are required to filter out child porn from a list of URLs that the Pennsylvania attorney general will give out. The article points out how pointless this is. All it's going to do is put a ridiculous burden on ISPs without actually preventing these sick people from accessing child porn. It's a knee-jerk reaction which doesn't help the situation and only harms the service providers who have nothing to do with the porn itself. Will we ever get technology savvy legislators?
