If a bill passed by Utah's legislature is signed by the governor, state officials will have to comb the Internet looking for sites that appeal to the "prurient interest in sex" of children. Those sites, whether they are legally obscene or not, will be placed on a list of sites that are "harmful to minors." Internet service providers would then have to block the sites or provide customers with software that could block them. And Utah companies that build or maintain any of those sites would have to label them as "harmful to minors." Anyone who breaks the law would face up to one year in prison and/or a $2,500 fine. Opponents say the bill's wording also makes it applicable to e-mail companies, search engines, and hosting companies.
