Baby Brother Is Watching You




New Jersey Assemblyman PETER J. BIONDI want's webmasters and isp's to force identification of all posters to webforums and blogs. Please describe your thoughts on this matter in as much detail as you like by commenting below. Obviously Mr. BIONDI is not content to keep his cranial hemeroids within the bounderies of New Jersey, but through the magic of the internet want's to share his stupidity with the world. I guess there is no more important work to be done in New Jersey.


ASSEMBLY, No. 1327

As introduced.
An Act concerning the posting of certain Internet messages and supplementing chapter 38A of Title 2A of the New Jersey Statutes.

Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:

1. As used in this act:

"Information content provider" means any person or entity that is responsible, in whole or in part, for the creation or development of information provided through the Internet or any other interactive computer service.

"Interactive computer service" means any information system, service, or access software provider that provides or enables computer access by multiple users to a computer server, including specifically a service or system that provides service to the Internet.

"Internet" means the international computer network of both federal and non-federal interoperable packet switched data networks.

"Operator" means any person, business or organization qualified to do business in this State that operates an interactive computer service.

2. The operator of any interactive computer service or an Internet service provider shall establish, maintain and enforce a policy to require any information content provider who posts written messages on a public forum website either to be identified by a legal name and address, or to register a legal name and address with the operator of the interactive computer service or the Internet service provider through which the information content provider gains access to the interactive computer service or Internet, as appropriate.

3. An operator of an interactive computer service or an Internet service provider shall establish and maintain reasonable procedures to enable any person to request and obtain disclosure of the legal name and address of an information content provider who posts false or defamatory information about the person on a public forum website.

4. Any person who is damaged by false or defamatory written messages that originate from an information content provider who posts such messages on a public forum website may file suit in Superior Court against an operator or provider that fails to establish, maintain and enforce the policy required pursuant to section 2 of P.L. , c. (C.) (pending before the Legislature as this bill), and may recover compensatory and punitive damages and the cost of the suit, including a reasonable attorney's fee, cost of investigation and litigation from such operator or provider.

What fun! I have posted the following message on my blog and on my libertarian discussion forum.

A reader has felt inspired to set up a site called http://flamingbozos.blogspot.com/ Flame'n Bozos in order to stir up comment "on the Political Bozos who don't get it." Well done. When you discover a politician who cannot bear to be lambasted on public websites, then the best answer is to set up as many lambasting sites as possible. Check out Flame'n Bozos and leave a comment. It is likely that Biondi or his staff -- who clearly do monitor e-messages about him -- will read it. Speak rude truth to power!

Someone please inform this cretin Biondi about the facts of life. I currently rent web hosting space in the U.S. for several sites. If this bill passes, I'll be forced to move every site to a non-U.S. web host. If others do likewise it will be great for other countries' Internet industries, but not so good for the U.S. Does this bill help anything besides' Biondi's inflated ego and offended self-importance? (I refuse to say "offended dignity" because it's clear the man has none.)

I, for one, support the good assemblyman's valiant efforts to bring respect, law, and order to the wild west of the information superhighway where depraved terrorists peddle illegal drugs and child porn. Cutting down on personal attacks against politicians is merely a side benefit in the ongoing war on hoi polloi.

For further inspiration, the honorable Biondi should follow the lead of Romania's commie-party leader Nastase who has spent the week ranting to the press about how it should be illegal to arrest politicians. The fact that Nastase is on the verge of jailtime for immense financial fraud is as irrelevant as Biondi's motivation for demanding accountability from those who dare to speak out.

The fact is, my fellow Americans, that the people must be stopped before this whole freedom thing gets taken too far!
