Internet Archive v. Hoffman

The Internet Archive has filed a new legal challenge against a New Jersey state law -- N.J. P.L. c.

Washington state online sex ad law stopped in its tracks

Last month, the Electronic Frontier Foundation filed a motion to the court on behalf of the Internet Archive to stop the law, arguing it was overbroad as written. The EFF argued that because the Internet Archive might have unknowingly cached a sex ad, it could be liable for prosecution.

The law, formally known as SB 6251, aimed to strengthen protections of underage children forced into sexual exploitation and prostitution. Most notably, it would force Backpage.com, the company owned by Village Voice Media, to impose in-person age verification for adult sex-related classified ads.
