The October 2013 iAWFUL

  1. Efforts to Upend the Most Important Internet Law You’ve Never Heard Of
    A seemingly small change to Section 230 could spell the end of user-generated content sites as we know them.
  1. California Law Chills the use of Internet Sites
    Unconstitutional California law is discriminatory and creates liability for internet sites that show ads to teenagers for items such as pepper spray and lottery tickets.

    Legislators are being misled to believe that a tool of law enforcement is unregulated or violates personal information, but that is far from the truth.
  1. Federal Internet Sales Tax
    Imposing a new tax, new collection and filing requirements, and unleashing up to 600 auditors on online businesses.
  1. Creating New Taxes on Travel Services
    Creating new taxes on travel agents and expanding hotel taxes to all parts of bundled travel packages.
  1. Taking Away Control Over Your Online Accounts
    Allowing a court-appointed executor to counter your express wishes for how your online accounts are handled when you die.
