中英對照讀新聞》Utah seeks to block pornographic content on smartphones 猶他州尋求阻絕智慧手機上的色情內容
The governor of Utah on Wednesday announced a new law requiring an anti-pornography filter on smartphones and tablets sold in the conservative Mormon-majority US state.
The law, which Republican Spencer Cox said he had signed the night before, would penalize manufacturers failing to include the filter between $10 and $500 per violation.
Backed by conservative lawmakers in the western state － where members of the Mormon Church make up two-thirds of the population － the measure would only take effect in the unlikely event that five other states pass similar laws.
In practice, the reform could look like the reverse of parental controls on existing devices sold by tech companies such as Apple and Google, in which the filters are by default turned off.
