New York State Internet Legistation : To End Internet Anonymity


New York State politicians in March 2012 drafted and introduced a bill to both chambers of the New York State Legislature that is designed to “provide the right to know who is behind an anonymous internet posting”. The bill, if passed, would require website administrators to police their websites and set up special methods from which 3rd parties can request to force public, or otherwise remove, a specific post on a website.

The legislation is viewable here http://assembly.state.ny.us/leg/?def...rm=2011&Text=Y


Quote:
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. The civil rights law, is amended by adding a new section
79-o to read as follows:
S 79-O. ANONYMOUS INTERNET POSTER; RIGHT TO KNOW.

A WEB SITE ADMINISTRATOR UPON REQUEST SHALL REMOVE ANY COMMENTS
POSTED ON HIS OR HER WEB SITE BY AN ANONYMOUS POSTER UNLESS SUCH ANONY-
MOUS POSTER AGREES TO ATTACH HIS OR HER NAME TO THE POST AND CONFIRMS
THAT HIS OR HER IP ADDRESS, LEGAL NAME, AND HOME ADDRESS ARE ACCURATE.
ALL WEB SITE ADMINISTRATORS SHALL HAVE A CONTACT NUMBER OR E-MAIL
ADDRESS POSTED FOR SUCH REMOVAL REQUESTS, CLEARLY VISIBLE IN ANY
SECTIONS WHERE COMMENTS ARE POSTED.
The theory, according to New York State Senator Thomas O’Mara who introduced the bill in the New York State Senate, is to deal with the issue of cyberbullying.

Mashable ran the article and interview at http://mashable.com/2012/05/23/internet-anonymity/

Not likely to see this ever become law, but its pending legislation for review!

This law will do nothing other then help make those who are selling/offering proxy servers more revenue. I guess as a NY'er I need to get some off shore servers and start selling access to them to use as proxies so I can get a jump on cashing in on this bill if it becomes a law lol
