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.

Not exactly, some ISP's actually market that they do filtering.

But they filter porn and other things which certain people of a certain relgious prefer not to see and I guess also their kids.

Also pretty much every ISP does do filtering from time to time, but for technical reasons. To prevent DOS-attacks, prevent spam from getting out their networks and so on.
