Fifteen Major Social Networking Sites Now Using e-Stop

Friday, 25 December 2009 00:00

Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced last week that 13 additional social networking sites, including those owned by Google, Yahoo! and AOL, have agreed to remove New York sex offenders from their sites. This comes in the wake of the attorney general’s announcement earlier this month that Facebook and MySpace – the two largest social networking sites – successfully removed over 3,500 sex offenders.

As of press time, 15 major social networking companies have agreed to use New York’s Electronic Securing and Targeting of Online Predators Act (e-STOP), authored by Cuomo, to purge registered sex offenders from their sites. The law requires all registered sex offenders to register their email accounts, screen names and any other Internet identifiers with the state Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS). That information is then made available to social networking sites. Several other companies continue to ignore this critical measure to make the Internet safer.

New York Conference of Mayors Calls for Amendments

Written by Carol Frank and Victoria Caruso-Davis Friday, 27 November 2009 09:56

Westbury’s Mayor Weighs In 

The sponsors call it the “Empowerment Act” for short, but local governments are calling it the “Disenfranchisement Act” because the sweeping legislation passed this June, going into effect in March 2010, requires residents to vote to dissolve or consolidate local government before they know whether such actions will or will not save them money.
