Internet & Networking A major win has been scored in Europe against the content industry and several governments who are trying to impose censorship on the internet through ISPs. The European Court of Justice, the highest court in Europe, gave a preliminary opinion which states that no ISP can be forced to filter the internet, especially not enforce copyright.

What about ones imposed by governments? That's the one that needs addressing 'cause it's already happening in many so-called democratic countries outside of Europe.


[1] democracy != freedom (this mistake is often made. sometimes, you might have more freedom under a dictatorship than in a democracy)

[2] we'll install a few proxies in europe :-)
