Corker said the legislation will target online sex trafficking by providing victims the opportunity to seek justice against websites, such as backpage.com, that knowingly facilitate sex trafficking and allowing law enforcement officials to take action against these websites.
HR 1865 "Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017" is created to combat online sex trafficking by weakening a legal shield for online services that support abusive content. The site offered classified listings for a wide variety of products and services including prostitution and sex trafficking. It will help hold the websites that sold them liable for the damage they've done. "For too long, federal law has shielded websites that knowingly profit off the sexual exploitation of trafficking victims". It says, "Websites that promote and facilitate prostitution have been reckless in allowing the sale of sex trafficking victims and have done nothing to prevent the trafficking of children and victims of force, fraud, and coercion". Craigslist also removed its personal ads section shortly after the final vote.
The law is meant to make it easier for state prosecutors and sex-trafficking victims to sue social media networks, advertisers and others that kept exploitative material on their platforms.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
