Submission + - ACLU, EFF challenge law targeting online activities of sex offenders (computerworld.com.au)

The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California and the Electronic Frontier Foundation said parts of Proposition 35 restrict the constitutionally protected speech of all registered sex offenders in the state. About 81 percent of Californians voted to approve the Californians Against Sexual Exploitation (CASE) Act, which increases prison sentences and fines for human traffickers. Portions of Proposition 35 would require all registered sex offenders — even those with decades-old, low-level offenses like misdemeanor indecent exposure — to turn over information about their Internet accounts to police"
