EU Parliament Votes on Porn Ban Resolution...
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:
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.
