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.
Would "unplug your cable" qualify as a "way to disable access"?
