This reminds me of jaywalking laws. They are on the books but awfully hard to enforce.

Look for a new industry of third party snoops to do the job for those who can't.

Or something like that.

This law doesn't protect you from people looking at your stuff but it does protect you from a hiring company demanding you give up your access information for their perusal.

And that's the right place to draw the line. Nobody has any business demanding my passwords from me, demanding to know who my friends and family are, or demanding access to all the messages I send and receive from them.

And I have no business telling them they can't go on the internet and see what I've posted in my own name for all the world to see. If I've made it public, it's public.

re: #2 Locker

So how do you prevent a third party from looking at your stuff and passing it on?

The company can claim they didn't do anything but how can stop them from not using the info?

Don't get me wrong- I like the old fashioned idea of privacy being sacrosanct, but I do believe that reality may be in the rear view mirror.

There's a world of difference between being able to look at what someone has posted, and being able to access their accounts. This is a good law.

Like I said this law doesn't stop them from googling you and looking at anything public. It stops them from saying "Provide me with your facebook login name and password" and they go in and look at all of your private shit.

So it doesn't stop anyone else from hacking you and passing it along but the state normally frowns on that sort of thing.
