Senator John McCain pushes for the censorship of child pornography on the internet

Back in July, we reported a bill was passed that would fine webmasters for hosting porn and mislabeling it as "GI Joe" or "Barbie". Senator John McCain wants to take that law one step further, and make all multimedia violating sex offender laws deleted, and then either reported or fined. The Stop the Online Exploitation of Our Children Act would require reports sent to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children of any and all illegitimate images. If a webmaster deletes and reports posted illegal content, they would be free from any and all persecution, assuming they kept records of the incident for at least six months. However, if a webmaster intentionally holds back reports and does not delete illegitimate content, they would be fine-able for $300,000 per image. The new law would require all sites that allow users to post content to submit reports. This includes social networking sites such as MySpace, message boards such as the TechPowerUp! Forums, and sites that allow for user profiles, such as Amazon.Source: CNET
