01-17 State-by-State Differences in Sexting Laws: Internet Safety Parenting Tips

No comments

Sexting among teens and tweens is a relatively new phenomenon, and many state legislatures are still trying to determine what to do about it. Because of this, laws concerning sexting vary widely. It can be easy to assume your child would never sext someone else, but kids often feel pressure to exchange sexual messages, images, or videos, so taking the time to have an open conversation with them can give them the opportunity to express any concerns. If you need extra support, Bark can help by alerting you about sexual content so you can talk through issues if your kid experiences them.

What is Sexting?

While not all state laws officially define sexting, it’s generally regarded as the act of digitally sending or sharing sexually explicit images and/or texts. These can be nude or semi-nude images or just explicit texts. Typically, sexting occurs via text message, but any electronic transfer fits the definition — emailing, sending Instagram DMs, Snapchat selfies, and even TikTok messages. Young people don’t always know that what they’re doing can, in fact, be illegal and that the ramifications for these actions lead to criminal prosecution.

01-15 Time to Pass the EARN IT Act in 2022! Here’s Why.

No comments

Support the EARN IT ACT NOW!

The EARN IT Act (Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies Act) was passed unanimously by the Senate Judiciary Committee, 22-0, with bipartisan support in 2020 but a busy calendar prevented further action. We need you to tell your congressional members to re-introduce the EARN IT Act for 2021-22 and commit to co-sponsor it!

Child sexual abuse material (CSAM, aka child pornography) is rampant on the internet, One reason is because courts interpreted Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) as granting interactive computer services near blanket immunity from liability. So Big Tech has no incentive to prevent CSAM and eliminate it from digital platforms. They won’t even take it down after victims complain!

A New York Times investigation last fall entitled, “The Internet is Overrun with Images of Child Sexual Abuse. What Went Wrong?” noted that in 2008, over 600,000 images/videos of CSAM were reported to NCMEC. It was called an epidemic. Yet, in 2019, 70,000,000—70 million—CSAM images were reported. The New York Times called it an “almost unfathomable” increase in criminal behavior. Internet platforms have not earned any right to immunity when they facilitate crime, especially a crime that causes deep, lifelong harm to its victims.

The EARN IT Act entails a precise, surgical, socially responsible change to CDA 230 that will directly address this horrific criminality by effectively ending impunity for online platforms that profit from child sexual exploitation. The Earn It Act will finally introduce accountability for Big Tech. Please tell your Senators and Members of Congress to re-introduce and co-sponsor today!

01-12 Sex Abuse Lawsuit Against Prince Andrew Can Go Forward: Judge

No comments

A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that the sex abuse lawsuit against Prince Andrew brought by a longtime Jeffrey Epstein accuser could move forward.

In a Wednesday morning opinion, Judge Lewis Kaplan denied the royal’s motion to dismiss Virginia Giuffre’s suit against him.

Andrew’s attorneys had argued in their motion to dismiss the suit that Giuffre was barred from suing him because of a 2009 settlement agreement that she inked with Epstein to dismiss a Florida suit she brought against the pedophile.

The agreement releases “other potential defendants” from being sued by Giuffre, but Kaplan wrote in his decision Wednesday that the language of the agreement is too ambiguous for him to dismiss the suit against Andrew.
