House Votes on Internet SAFE Act


Posted December 6, 2007 - By bleahy

The House just passed a friendly new act with a silly little name: the SAFE Act. This bill will "ensure better reporting, investigation, and prosecution of those who use the Internet to distribute images of illegal child pornography."

The vote was a landslide in favor with only two Republicans voting against it. The first was friend-of-the-internets Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Rep. Paul Broun (R-Georgia).

If the bill is passed by the Senate (assume that it will be), it will require that providers of public networks (free Wi-Fi, etc) report any people that they find transmitting or storing illegal images and child pornography.

The bill calls for:

Anyone providing an "electronic communication service" or "remote computing service" to the public who learns about the transmission or storage of information about certain illegal activities or an illegal image must (a) register their name, mailing address, phone number, and fax number with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's "CyberTipline" and (b) "make a report" to the CyberTipline that (c) must include any information about the person or Internet address behind the suspect activity and (d) the illegal images themselves.

P.S.: Cartoon porn that features depictions of minors is illegal.
