And It Begins…

Roy Cooper, the Attorney General from North Carolina announced yesterday that he is proposing State law changes that will…

“…increase punishment, give law enforcement better ways to track down offenders and require those who discover pedophiles to turn them in. It would also require social networking websites to get parents’ permission before their children share personal information that would leave them vulnerable to a predator.”

This is the first State to move towards regulation. I won’t be surprised if the other 38 Attorney Generals in the coalition follow suit soon. You can read more about Coopers proposal here.
