Windows 7: French net filtering plan moves forward.

French net filtering plan moves forward.

Quote:
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 bill, known as Loppsi II in French, was approved by 312 votes to 214 in a vote in the National Assembly on Tuesday. The government has a large majority in the Assembly; two of its deputies abstained, with the others all voting in favor of the bill.

I can see riots coming, there is no way the French public will allow that.

Another case of Government being out of step with the populace.
They want to be seen to be "doing something" & the great majority wouldn't understand the technicalities anyway.

I think this is a good thing. The German President just signed a very similar bill and it has a high approval rate. To what extent it is going to be effective is another question. But the goverments cannot just sit there and let these things mushroom. Think of all the nuisance you see under the umbrella of the 1st amendment.

Hey, who turned out the lights ?

Dumb stupid politicians or the unwashed masses. ?

The more they try to filter, the more problems with it ( filtering ) they will find.
