The 2008 Protect Children from Sexual Predators Act in North Carolina, which prevented registered sex offenders from joining social networks including Facebook, was ruled unconstitutional by that state’s Court of Appeals.
Facebook is no longer a fan of a controversial bill that would drastically change cybersecurity. According to CNET, the social network pulled its support of H.R. 624, better known as the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. Opponents of the bill, which would give online entities the option to share data with the U.S. government, claim that it would destroy online privacy.
