avanza muy lenta


Explanation:
Dado que se refiere a la ley de difamación respecto a la tecnología y a que "dawdling" significa "walk slowly", bien podría ser una opción, en el sentido de actualizarse para poder legislar la difamación mediante los avances tecnológicos.
Otra más libre podría ser "está a años luz" de la tecnología, pero haría falta más contexto para afinar un poco más.
