About half a year ago, a law for internet censorship passed the first stage in our parliament, on its way to become in effect. The way it was done is disguising the law as a way to protect against child pornography.
There was quite a lot of opposition and finally at the beginning of this week, the law proposal was dropped. This of course makes quite us happy.
“I’ll give you an anecdote of a copyright seminar. The Danish head honcho came and said: You know, the politicians don’t understand file sharing. So what we need to do is to filter the internet. But since politicians don’t understand what that means, we should associate it with child pornography. Because politicians understand child pornography.“
