Letter from EFF Staff Counsel Shari Steele to GA governor, explaining why HB1630 is bad news and why he should veto it (he didn't).
full text of the statue modified by GA HB1630, as it appeared "on the books" (easier to understand in this form than in bill form.)
alert regarding GA state bill HB1630, and background info on it and its sponsor.
Incredibly stupid and unconstitutional legislation authored by state legislator (and BellSouth employee) Don Parsons that makes it a crime to be anonyous or pseudonymous online, to use anyone else's trademark in an email address or domain name (even if the trademark is in a completely different area of commerce and not applicable to online services), and other terrible things. Passed into state law by governor, Apr. 18, 1996.
