Back in the fall, we worried about proposed legislation in California designed to deal with "sex offenders" online. As we noted, the bill would almost inevitably pass -- as it did -- because most people think that increased punishment for sex offenders makes sense. But there are serious issues with the bill if you don't know the details. First, many "sex offenders" aren't what you might think of as "sex offenders" -- people who are arrested for things like urinating in public, or for consensual sex between minors. Beyond that, this particular bill went really, really far, requiring all such "offenders" to hand over all details of every online service they used -- no matter what the purpose.
