Short Take: New minors bill exempts ISPs

The California Assembly's Public Safety Committee has approved a bill that would make it illegal for adults to seduce minors using the Net. Rep. Steven Kuykendall (R-Long Beach) introduced the bill in January; the assembly is expected to vote in two weeks on an amended version of the bill. The new version exempts ISPs, online services, or cable companies from responsibility for communications transmitted on their services that violate the law.
