As pressure to tame the Internet mounts in the US, the state of New Mexico has made it illegal to send 'indecent' material to minors over the Net.
Amid the raging debate about Internet control at a national level, Governor Gary Johnson signed the decree, SB 127, on Monday. This makes it an offence to use a computer to knowingly disseminate to under-18s indecent material - which the state defines as content that ?in whole or in part depicts actual or simulated nudity, sexual conduct, or sadomasochistic abuse, and that is harmful to minors.?
In response, the American Civil Liberties Union said it will challenge the law in order to preserve a person?s right to free speech. Last summer the Supreme Court overturned a similar federal law on the grounds that the term 'indecent' infringed on free speech, as it prohibited Web pages containing information about safe sex, for example.
