Children in the US could be banned from using any website in schools and libraries. The “Deleting Online Predators” Act tries to limit the access paedophiles have to social networking sites, which have become hugely popular with children. The act, which has already been approved by a large majority in the House of Representatives could affect sites social networking sites such as MySpace, Bebo, Friendster, as well as other sites like Amazon and blogs.

Pakistan and India put such bans on blogs to stop people from reading material which were not in interest of the governments or against their religions. Whereas the US ban is target to save children from “unlawful sexual advances” and from “Online Predators”. But currently the categorization of ban is too broad and may become a serious hazard for public.
