Re: Utah considers law to mandate ISP's block "harmful" sites

  • From: Roy Engehausen

You missed a very important line in the article:

"Internet providers in Utah must offer their customers a way to disable access to sites on the list or face felony charges."

In other words you must provide a mechanism for a customer to "opt-in" to a filter. Doesn't sound illegal to force an ISP to provide a feature.

Someone might consider pointing them to the law from the state of PA that
did similar things... Then point them at the overturning of that law.
