Child protection registry. Requires the secretary of state to establish the child protection registry. Permits a person to register with the registry certain "contact points" that belong to a minor. Defines a contact point to be: (1) an electronic mail address; (2) an instant message identity; (3) a mobile or other telephone number; (4) a facsimile number; or (5) a similar point of communication defined by rule by the secretary of state. Permits a school or other institution that primarily serves minors to register its domain name with the registry. Provides that a person may not send a communication to a contact point that has been registered for more than 30 days if the communication has the express purpose of advertising or promoting a product or service that a minor is prohibited by law from purchasing, unless the advertisement is from a retail establishment that: (1) is advertising a product that may be purchased by an adult; and (2) verifies the age of the purchaser at the point of sale when age restricted products are sold. Permits a communication that is in response to a direct inquiry from a consumer if the person verifies the consumer's age. Requires persons who send such communications to check the registry (for a fee) to ensure compliance with the law, and provides that the fee will be deposited in the electronic and enhanced access fund. Provides that a contractor may not be paid more than 80% of the fees generated. Authorizes the secretary of state to adopt rules to administer the statute and the registry. Provides for civil enforcement of the statute.
