Interviewed by WVUE Fox8 News regarding social media legislation

I was interviewed by Evan Anderson for a TV segment on New Orleans’ Fox8 News regarding the recently enacted Louisiana law (Act 375), which prohibits online impersonation. The Act makes it illegal to:

  • sign up for an email account, if
  • you don’t have permission of the person in whose name the account is being created

The maximum fine is $1,000, and the maximum jail sentence is six months. It’s not a crime with harsh penalties, but it would seem to be pretty easy to prove.
