School/Library ban on social sites proposed...

US law proposed to ban library access to social websites

According to the proposed legislation (~May 10, 2006), the bill
"prohibits access by minors without parental authorization to a commercial social networking website or chat room through which minors may easily access or be presented with obscene or in- decent material; may easily be subject to unlawful sexual advances, unlawful requests for sexual favors, or repeated offensive comments of a sexual nature from adults may easily access other material that is harmful to minors."
