From Washington Internet Daily:

Legislation to curb online sex trafficking could “unravel the internet,” said a Medium post by groups including Demand Progress, Electronic Frontier Foundation, FreedomWorks, R Street Institute, Center for Democracy & Technology and Engine. The groups raised concerns over the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (S-1693) for creating unclear standards and opening internet content to laws from 50 states. “There’s no shortage of suggestions about how to make this bill better, but there is one thing that’s missing: recognition from Congress that this bill affects us all,” the groups said. They said it will take the full power of the internet to stop sex trafficking, but policymakers need to understand that the internet isn’t just a group of “powerful tech companies and government regulators — it’s you and me and everyone.”
