French net filtering plan moves forward


www.goodgearguide.com.au

French lawmakers voted Tuesday to approve a draft law to filter Internet traffic, a measure the government says is intended to catch child pornographers. The bill will now go on for a second and final reading.

Critics of the catch-all "Bill on direction and planning for the performance of domestic security" say that filtering won't stop the spread of child pornography -- but could allow the government to censor other materials.

The old bugaboo of child pornography again has been used to justify a government taking control of what people are allowed to read and see on the internet. Notice that most technical experts have already stated that this will do nothing to assist in the fight against child pornography, but fortunately for the French people (okay government really), they won't know that since they won't be able to read about what a cock-up the program is.

What generally does get censored (Australia is an example) is material critical of the government or its policies or that contains material that would be embarrassing to those in power.

Fortunately, the morons who do this have no concept of the fact that technology adapts faster then they can legislate.

Yeah, child porn is just an excuse. Here it's supposedly common for the FBI to get search warrants claiming they suspect child porn when they can't get any other dirt on their victim.


I have faith in the French people though to fight this. They are a pretty disrespectful lot towards their government it seems to me, and that is great for any country.

S&F.

I really liked this bit:

And there you have it.
