MySpace to be banned in US schools, libraries?

Posted on Thursday, Aug 03 2006 @ 02:59 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Children in the U.S. could be banned from using social networking sites like MySpace in schools and libraries by a new law:
The Deleting Online Predators Act tries to limit the access paedophiles have to the networking sites which have become hugely popular with minors.

The act has already been approved by a large majority in the House of Representatives.

Critics say the act is too broad and could mean a huge number of websites are cut off from users.
