Of course.

All this law does is garner votes for some lawmakers. If you do a cursory examination into Louisiana's wide range of mental derangements, you'll understand how this law came to pass. The lawmakers already know that the law wastea time and money, but the benefit it gives them in votes is worth it, Besides, it'll stop the idiots who think it can work from pestering them :-)

This is merely a sop to the idiot moralists.and peace and quiet for the lawmakers.

Ask @boone. He'll confirm the crazys down there.

or just piracy ... but that really isn't the issue. It's getting into the idea if states have control over Internet within their region the same way countries do. Remember that a US Federal court recently upheld a Texas law over Internet censorship. Ultimately, this is going to add to general balkanization, and will push more questions about state's rights issues.
