Amway, you have absolutely zero idea whether or not this will be enforced. With the law on the books in any case of online bullying where fake profiles are made, like the case of the girl who committed suicide after that disgusting mother made a fake account, you can expect people to be prosecuted under this law.

Don't you remember how hard people were itching to prosecute her but there was no applicable law. Well now there is.

Basically you are wrong.
I don't think it is clear he is wrong. Your argument is bad. You have no established that state law should apply to the internet. You are making a normative claim without clear justification. Just because a woman made an account and subsequently a girl killed herself doesn't clearly support your normative claim. If I call you ugly and you kill yourself, that's your bad.

I support this. I'm not really sure how this could be seen to be negative, tbh. The internet's not some kind of freedom - what you do and say still has consequences.

British Libel Laws mean that if you made libellous comments about me, I could sue you from anywhere in the world, provided they had been read by someone in Britain. That includes the server being in America.
Seems a bit worse, huh?

I guess it depends on whether or not the country I am in is going to enforce a British court's judgment.

Basically you are wrong.
It's physically impossible for them to catch every single case of "online impersonation". It's similar to pirating software, movies, and music they can't catch every single person, they don't even try because like I stated before, it's impossible. They might punish a few people, in a few select cases to show that they are serious, but in the end they will only do that to try to scare everyone straight.
BTW, this is only in California so this doesn't apply to the other 49-states so saying the majority is against this isn't giving that statement justice. I don't support identity theft nor impersonation of any kind, but our internet rights are going down the toilet quickly. Next thing you know we'll have to use our actual names as user ID. Some people would rather everyone not know who they are, where they live, how old they are, ect..

Raping children doesn't happen online.

Since everyone is hating on California, (even though approximately 1 in 8 U.S. citizens are also citizens of California), and since California is so "backwards", the Golden State should simply close its doors and coffers for one year and see how things go.
California by itself has the 8th largest economy in the world and over the last two decades California has put over $3.65 billion USD more on average per year into the Federal coffers than it receives in Federal services. The other 49 states may hate us, but in many ways, they couldn't live without us.

EDIT: Plus...Eff with us and no more horrible movies or overpriced technology to waste your money on.
