I believe that control over children's use of the internet should be primarily on the parents of said children.
Writing rules to "protect" our children appear to be unneeded. There is already provisions that voids any contract between a minor and adults. Where there is fraud, rules already exist to prosecute offenders.
In my opinion, we do not need more laws, we need enforcement of existing ones.
Computers are already set up to allow passwords to be used to limit access.
There are also many programs that are available that will restrict access to certain types of offensive (to the particular viewer's subjects) material.
The question then becomes: "If enacted, what will this legislation do that is not already available through other means?"
If one eliminates the argument: "I haven't got time to be with my own children to supervise them." it would appear that there is no justification for passage.
Having said that, persons that take unlawful advantage or try to take unlawful advantage of children should be prosecuted to the full extent of existing law.
