Minors to delete regretful net pics under California law

Admins forced to erase content.

Web admins would be required to delete content posted by minors if requested by the authors under California law.  

California Governor Edmund Brown signed legislation (Senate Bill 568) which required operators of websites, mobile apps and other online services to remove content or information posted by residents under the age of 18, who request the removal.

Starting in 2016, operators would either be required to rid of the postings themselves, or permit minors, who are registered users of their site, service or application, to remove the content they posted.  

Operators would not be required to delete content reposted by third parties or remove information from their servers – they would only have to make sure the content was no longer publicly viewable.
