Internet & Networking Since it's weekend, let's start with some good news we can all be happy about. The United Nations has declared internet access a human right, and has called upon all nations to not instate any laws that have the power to cut people off the internet, with France and the UK being singled out because they passed three strikes laws.

I cannot understand these two statements at the same time:

"States have also taken measures to cut off access to the Internet entirely...such as the so-called 'three-strikes-law' in France"

"The constitutional council of France effectively declared Internet access a fundamental right in 2009"
