WASHINGTON(Reuters)-U.S.President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed legislation aimed at penalizing website operators that facilitate online sex trafficking and chipping away at a legal protection for the technology industry.

华盛顿(路透社)——周三,美国总统唐纳德·特朗普签署了一项法案,旨在惩罚那些为网上性交易提供便利的网站运营商,并削弱对科技行业的法律保护。

The law is intended to make it easier for state prosecutors and sex-trafficking victims to sue social media networks,advertisers and others that kept exploitative material on their platforms,although victims would be required to show websites knowingly facilitated sex trafficking.

这项法律旨在使国家检察官和性贩运受害者更容易起诉社交媒体网络、广告商和其他在其平台上持有剥削性材料的人,尽管受害者将被要求展示有意为性贩运提供便利的网站。

The signing occurred as Washington sharpens its scrutiny on technology companies,which have largely evaded regulation,for their use of privacy protections and consumer data.Mark Zuckerberg,the chief executive of Facebook Inc,has been testifying before lawmakers this week.

这项协议签署之际,华盛顿正在加强对科技公司的审查,这些公司基本上都在逃避监管,因为它们使用了隐私保护和消费者数据。Facebook 首席执行官马克扎克伯格(Mark Zuckerberg)本周一直在国会作证。

Silicon Valley has long opposed efforts to rewrite the Communications Decency Act,which protects companies from liability for content posted by their users and has been credited with fueling the sector's growth for 20 years.

长期以来,硅谷一直反对重写通信规范法案,该法保护公司免于因用户发布的内容而承担责任,并被认为推动了该行业20年的增长。

However,Facebook and other technology companies and lobbying groups mostly withdrew opposition to the legislation in recent months after negotiating changes that limited the bill's potential impact.

然而,Facebook 和其它科技公司以及游说团体最近几个月多数都收回了对该法案的反对意见,此前有关方面就限制该法案潜在影响的修改进行了谈判。

Some technology companies fear the bill could signal more efforts to tighten regulation on the industry.

一些科技公司担心,该法案可能意味着政府将采取更多措施加强对该行业的监管。

Law enforcement has lobbied for such legislation for years,and the bill had drawn support from Ivanka Trump,the president's daughter and a White House adviser.

多年来,执法部门一直在为此类立法进行游说,该法案得到了总统女儿、白宫顾问伊万卡·特朗普(Ivanka Trump)的支持。

"This is a momentous day in the fight to help stop online sex trafficking,and a big victory for trafficking victims and survivors who for too long have been denied the opportunity to get the justice they deserve,"said Republican U.S.Senator Rob Portman,a co-sponsor of the Senate version of the bill.

美国共和党参议员罗布·波特曼(Rob Portman)是该法案参议院版本的共同发起人之一,他说:"在帮助阻止网络性交易的斗争中,这是一个重要的日子,也是人口贩卖受害者和幸存者的一个重大胜利,他们长期以来一直被剥夺了获得应有正义的机会。"

On Monday,an indictment against Backpage.com,the internet's second-largest classified ads website,which is used for sex trafficking,was unsealed.

周一,针对互联网第二大分类广告网站 backpage 的起诉书被启封,该网站用于性交易。

Trump,who had been expected to sign the bill,did not respond to reporters'questions when he signed it.

特朗普在签署该法案时没有回应记者的提问。
