[News] The Latest About the Fight Against Europe's Internet

Hash: SHA1

Is Internet access a 'fundamental right'?

,----[ Quote ]
| Or how about a right to get The Wall Street Journal? It provides useful 
| commentary on my government's actions and how they affect my wallet. But 
| then, I'd also need The New York Times so that I could develop a balanced 
| view on important political matters.   
| None of which will matter if the government doesn't force upon me the right 
| to education! And not just any education, but an education that makes me 
| fully capable of making intelligent voting decisions and filling out endless 
| forms.   


Web designer opposes France's "3 strikes" law, loses job

,----[ Quote ]
| An employee of French broadcaster TF1 was fired after privately expressing 
| opposition to the new "graduated response" bill moving through the National 
| Assembly. He e-mailed his MP, who forwarded the message to the Ministry of 
| Culture, which passed it to TF1.   


European Parliament rejects Telecoms Package 

,----[ Quote ]
| Telecoms Package surprise result as European Parliament makes a vote for 
| democracy and civil liberties on the Internet. But it is  not clear how much 
| of a win it is.    


Malcolm Harbour Doesn't Get Net Neutrality

,----[ Quote ]
| The questioner is wrong to frame this in terms of blocking *sites*: it's 
| about blocking *services*, particularly ones based on new protocols 
| piggy-backing on TCP/IP. The Telecoms Package gives telecoms companies the 
| possibility of blocking anything it doesn't like at this level - killing net 
| neutrality - provided they tell people what they are doing.    


Aussie censors implement six degrees of separation policy

,----[ Quote ]
| The Australian Government yesterday broke new records for web censorship by 
| requiring the takedown not just of a page containing harmful content, nor 
| even a page linking to harmful content, but a page linking to a link to 
| allegedly harmful content.   



Radiohead's Manager: File Sharing Should Be Legal; It's Great For Music

,----[ Quote ]
| This probably isn't much of a surprise given Radiohead's well-publicized
| experiment with letting fans "pay what you want" for its last album, but the
| band's manager has now said that he thinks file sharing should be legal (sent
| in by Ruby), noting:
|     "We believe file-sharing by peer-to-peer should be legalised. The sharing
|     of music where it is not for profit is a great thing for culture and
|     music."
