Submission + - Website Age-Verification Based on Public Records

csw writes: I was checking out the website for the new movie "Superbad" (http://www.areyousuperbad.com) and when I tried to enter the restricted area which requires age verification I entered face data as usual. This site however would not work with fake data. I entered me real information and it let me in. I then tried my real information and changed spelling of my name to make it wrong and again it would not let me in. After a little research I found that some websites are basing verification on public records now (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/13/movies/13yell.h tml?ex=1339387200&en=5c292ac80cc2b0b2&ei=5088&part ner=rssnyt&emc=rss). What is everyones thoughts on this and how does one gain access to these records for verification of thier own?
