District 16 (Morris and Somerset)
Makes certain operators of interactive computer services and Internet service providers liable to persons injured by false or defamatory messages posted on public forum websites.Did you get that? If someone hurts your feelings on a public web site you should be ablte to hold someone liable for that action.
This bill would require an operator of any interactive computer service or an Internet service provider to establish, maintain and enforce a policy requiring an information content provider who posts messages on a public forum website either to be identified by legal name and address or to register a legal name and address with the operator or provider prior to posting messages on a public forum website.
OMFG! Could you imagine the impact to bloggers?
