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.

Considering the Danish ISP's have fought in court for years against filtering I don't think they will apply filtering on their own. That's effectively prohibited anyway - in Denmark (though the politicians are trying to extend the filtering).

If this ends with a court ruling banning forced filtering it will be in the 11th hour for Denmark, considering the new political course from the "liberal"-conservative government.
