California SB 646

This bill would allow victims of CSAM to bring a civil action against a person or company that distributes the material. It would require websites to list a contact to report violations and to report erroneous content removals.

California AB 1501

This bill would require a commercial sexually explicit website to use an age verification method that prevents minors from accessing sexually explicit material. Nothing about the method is defined. Noncompliance would open websites to private lawsuits from the parent or legal guardian of a minor who accessed the sexually explicit material.
