Whenever politicains want to do something controversial, they get their retorts in first. The EU is not trying to control free speech.
EU proposals to regulate content on the internet are aimed at protecting society not undermining free speech, European Union Media Commissioner Viviane Reding says.Who are we to question her. As a blogger however, any effort at regulating the internet worries me. So why do they want to so it?
She said the proposed regulations reflected "basic societal values" - the protection of young children and restrictions on incitement to hatred.Reflecting on the fact that I spend my time online inciting people to hate the EU, that doesn't really answer my fears.
