EU's Kroes says China 'Great Firewall' a WTO issue


www.google.com

European Commission vice president Neelie Kroes said Monday that China's censorship of the Internet constituted a trade barrier and should be dealt with by the World Trade Organisation.

Kroes, who is also in charge of charting the European Union's digital agenda, said she had raised the issue in Beijing last week in a meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang.

"It is one of those issues that needs to be tackled in the WTO," Kroes said in Shanghai as she concluded a five-day visit to China.

Isn't capitalism great?
Now even freedom of speech is plain business, not a human rights issue anymore.
So how are they going to solve it? More European money for China in order to get more porn into China and keeping the "conspiracies" and other perspectives on the news and events filtered out? Because that could hurt both.

BTW, is ATS available in China or is it blocked?

Personally ANYTHING that helps bring down the firewall is a good thing my opinion.

This is just another angle of attack. Sooner or later the Chinese will be able to join the rest of the planet. Be advised though that it's not just China that blocks and prevents certain areas of the internet other countries do it to.


I'm not just talking about Youtube blockage. Which to tell you the truth if TPTB in China are so afraid of Youtube
I think that may just demonstrate how seriously paranoid they are. Personally I think many things on Youtube is just stupid!

But that' just me.

PEACE
