Nebraska: Adult website age verification law passed

Lawmakers approved a proposal April 11 that requires websites containing sexually explicit content to verify a user’s age.

LB1092, introduced by Glenvil Sen. Dave Murman, adopts the Online Age Verification Liability Act. The bill attempts to prohibit a commercial entity from knowingly publishing or distributing material harmful to minors online by requiring them to use a reasonable age verification method to ensure that anyone attempting to access such material is at least 18 years old.

The age verification requirement would apply only if a “substantial portion” of the website’s content, defined as one-third or more, meets the bill’s definition of being harmful to minors. LB1092 passed on a 35-3 vote.

Authorized age verification methods include digitized identification cards, third-party age-verification services or methods that rely on public or private transactional data. A commercial entity or third party that performs an age verification is prohibited from retaining a person’s identifying information after access to the material has been granted. AgeGO provides a complete age verification solution for adult websites, that ensures total privacy for end users. Click here for more information.
