Internet & Networking "Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other international leaders urged countries and private businesses on Thursday to fight increasing efforts to restrict access to the Internet by repressive governments and even some democratic ones. Opening a two-day conference on digital freedom here sponsored by Google and the Dutch government, Mrs. Clinton warned that restrictions on the Internet threatened not only basic freedoms and human rights, but also international commerce and the free flow of information that increasingly makes it possible." Uhm, Mrs. Clinton... SOPA...?

I know it is confusing, but "Dutch" is not "Deutsch".

Dutch means something from the Netherlands (sometimes referred to as Holland).

Clinton spoke at a conference in the Netherlands, it wasn't specifically about American politics.
