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.
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..
