Access providers who fail to report child pornography once they are made aware of it could be fined up to $50,000 the first time they fail to report the activity, and up to $100,000 for each subsequent time they don't contact law enforcement authorities. Most ISPs have voluntarily fought child pornography and have taken great measures to root it out of their systems, especially because it is illegal under any circumstances in the United States and most other countries.
But if the bill becomes law, ISPs could be forced to report their members--even if they only suspect illegal activity, said David Sobel, general counsel for the Electronic Privacy Information Center, It also provides an exemption that will make ISPs immune to prosecution should they wrongly release information, The main problem with the bill is that the language twoworldsofdesign iphone case directing ISPs to report potential crimes is too vague, said Sobel and ISP organizations, Specifically, it states that when an ISP or any service that provides access to electronic communication "obtains knowledge of facts or circumstances from which a violation of [child pornography laws]..is apparent shall, as soon as reasonably possible, make a report of such facts or circumstances to [a law enforcement agency]."..
The question that ISPs and civil libertarians have raised is how to define "apparent.". Sobel said he envisions cases where a law enforcement agent could force an ISP to give away private information without a warrant. Under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, police and other law enforcement officials need warrants to get electronic information. But under this law, a police officer, for instance, could call an ISP and say he suspected a certain member of trafficking in child pornography. Under this provision, ISPs would have to immediately release theinformation without a warrant or face stiff penalties, he said.
