Porn Ban Resolution Fails in EU Parliament

Highly Discussed Paragraph Dropped From Draft

Last weekend, we reported about the vote about a resolution that aims at reducing gender stereotypes within the EU. A little part of it gained much attention because it incorporated that internet providers of countries should independently restrict access to pornographic contents on the internet. Apart from that, most of the other content in the resolution was positive and it could be expected that it would be granted on March 12th, 2013.

However, since this porn ban paragraph was so heavily discussed during the last couple of days, it was removed from the final resolution. Therefore, nobody has to fear a prohibition of porn in all media.

Attempts at explaining how this passage even got into the resolution in the first place and remained there unnoticed for so long, is quite amusing. Obviously, no one apart from the petitioners found this to be relevant - and that was justified since the passage is just a behavioral advice and in no way binding for countries. This was the reason why expert committees never bothered with it. The slightly naive demand for a porn ban was reasoned by saying that the petitioners aren't very "affine to the internet" and didn't grasp the consequences this passage could cause.
