SIIA’s Opposition to New Jersey Bill A.5750/S.4215 on Children’s Online Protection

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) opposes New Jersey bill A.5750/S.4215, designed to protect children online. The SIIA argues that the bill faces constitutional challenges due to its age verification and parental consent requirements. They claim these measures are impractical, potentially restricting access for underprivileged youth and hindering positive online development. Additionally, the SIIA criticizes the inclusion of a private right of action, suggesting it may lead to disproportionate legal costs. While supporting the goal of safeguarding minors, the SIIA urges reconsideration of the bill’s provisions to ensure constitutional compliance and practical feasibility.
