Ban on demanding Facebook passwords among new 2013 state laws

Reuters : Employers in California and Illinois will be prohibited from demanding access to workers' password-protected social networking accounts and teachers in Oregon will be required to report suspected student bullies thanks to new laws taking effect in 2013. (Culture, Facebook, Services, Web)
