EU Parliament Votes on Porn Ban Resolution...

... and Specifically Filters E-Mails of Citizens

Next week, the EU parliament will decide about a resolution dealing with the elimination of gender stereotypes within the EU. Normally, no one should have a problem with that but still, a little controversy stirred up regarding some aspects of the resolution. It isn't entirely clear what article 17 is supposed to mean:

17. Calls on the EU and its Member States to take concrete action on its resolution of 16 September 1997 on discrimination against women in advertising, which called for a ban on all forms of pornography in the media and on the advertising of sex tourism;

in connection to

14. Points out that a policy to eliminate stereotypes in the media will of necessity involve action in the digital field; considers that this requires the launching of initiatives coordinated at EU level with a view to developing a genuine culture of equality on the internet; calls on the Commission to draw up in partnership with the parties concerned a charter to which all internet operators will be invited to adhere; (Source)

Obviously, a part of the resolution aims at motivating the internet providers once again to take the censorship into their own hands instead of the customers' in oder to filter undesirable websites. Generally, this resolution is nothing that citizens have to fear because it doesn't become law in the countries. There's no prohibition of porn in the internet or anywhere else to follow. However, this resolution will surely build the basis for future propositions in that direction.

Much more interesting is what many representatives in the EU parliament think about the citizens' opinion on the resolution. Obviously nothing. As the politician Christian Engstrom writes, the parliamentarians have e-mails regarding this topic blocked.

The IT department of the European Parliament is blocking the delivery of the emails on this issue, after some members of the parliament complained about getting emails from citizens. (Source)
