Proposed Alabama Law Would Require Pornographic Content Blocked on All Smart Phones • ChurchLeaders.com

A newly proposed law would make it illegal for retailers to sell pornography-filterless devices in Alabama. House Bill 428 will be reviewed next week and is designed to drastically limit access to pornography, prostitution and sexual cyber harassment in that state.The new law was filed earlier this month by Representative Jack Williams. Defining an Internet-access device, the bill lists “a cellular telephone, computer, data communications device, or other product manufactured, distributed or sold in this state that provides Internet.”Williams’ bill would require retailers that sell such devices to install filters to block “obscene material, child pornography, images used for sexual cyber harassment or sites used for human trafficking,” according to ABC3340. The bill would make selling a smartphone (or any device with Internet access) without such a filter a class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail. Additionally, the law would make selling a filterless device to a minor a class C felony, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
