Legal While the US is still pondering SOPA, we just got some absolutely fantastic news out of Europe. The European Court of Justice, the highest court in the European Union, has just ruled that P2P filters installed by ISPs violate the European Directive on electronic commerce as well as fundamental rights [full ruling]. This is a hugely important ruling that effectively protects all member states of the European Union from ever being subjected to ISP filtering and spying.

Hell to the YEAH BABY! Finally something good comes out of the EU that does not completléy fucks us swedes over. Why we are even part of the EU is beyond my reasoning anymore. Northern alliance should have been instead of half of use joining the EU.
(teeny bit drunk)

Hypothetical; If norway invaded sweden, finland and denmark and we put up no resistance AT ALL (and even wellcomed our nordic brothers as liberators) would that be an "opt out" option from the EU?
