European Porn Ban: EU proposal seeks to regulate Internet..Ban all pornography in the media

A report that will be voted on in the European Union parliament March 12 could lay the groundwork for laws banning pornography across all media — including the Internet — and could potentially restrict civil liberties, free speech advocates claim.

The broader aim of the sweeping proposal, which was introduced by left-leaning parliamentarian Kartika Liotard of the Netherlands, is to foster gender equality in the EU by combatting gender stereotypes on many fronts. To that end, the opinion recommends a “ban all forms of pornography in the media,” including what it calls “the digital field.”

It also calls for the establishment of regulatory agencies with “a mandate to impose effective sanctions on companies and individuals promoting the sexualisation of girls.”

Although the vote on the report is not legally binding, if passed, the proposal could end up influencing EU law. According to Wired UK, the chances of an EU-wide pornography ban are slim, but free speech critics are nonetheless concerned about the report’s vague language.

“The devil is in the detail,” Christian Engstrom, EU parliamentarian from Sweden’s Pirate Party, wrote in his blog. “Although I completely agree that eliminating outdated gender stereotypes in the EU is a worthwhile goal, I will be voting against this resolution next week.”

Engstrom argues that the use of “media” was not sufficiently defined in the proposal, nor in the 1997 resolution that its anti-pornography language is based on. He said that, as it is written, the “media” could potentially include the Web, social networks, emails and photos uploaded by citizens of the EU’s 27 member states.

But that isn’t the only complication. According to CNET, if eventually worked into law, the opinion could also pave the way for Internet service providers to police their customers:

The wording suggests that while Internet service providers may not be forced to comply with the principles of the report, it could give these companies ‘policing rights’ over their customers, similar to the ‘six-strike’ rule in the U.S. relating to online piracy.

In February, an Icelandic politician’s proposed ban on Internet pornography was roundly criticized by free speech advocates.

dont be fooled..this appears to be a great idea to help society but its got nothing to do with that..its about restricting our freedom and controlling the internet and creating more laws that can used to shackle us..this is how governments work..you literally beg for the rule that constricts you even more.. because you think you are doing the right thing..

“eliminating outdated gender stereotypes” is the wedge..and if you dont agree with that your a sexist pig eh?..thats the squeeze they use..

“it could give these companies ‘policing rights’ over their customers, similar to the ‘six-strike’ rule in the U.S. relating to online piracy.”

and i posted on that a few weeks ago..

  1. Porn is the #1 searched thing on the internet, all this is going to do is keep it there and make it worse.

  2. Is The Disney Channel going to be blocked as it sexualises girls?
    I doubt it.

  3. google Richard Pacheco … he’s notable for living across the street from whoopi goldberg, being a major porn star, and studying to be a (fill in the blank).

    • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Pacheco

      In 1971, he met his wife, Carly, through the commune and they married in 1975. In the mid-1970s, Gordon was earning $5 per hour for construction work, and looking to begin a new career. He applied to the Episcopal Theological School at Harvard (to study history) and the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley. He was considering studying to become a Rabbi, but when he learned that he would have to travel to Israel and study Aramaic for 2 years, he opted to appear in a porn film instead.

      • “Five years later I auditioned for another X-rated film. That very day, I also interviewed at Hebrew Union Seminary to do rabbinical study. I made the choice that the kind of rabbi I would be, if I became one, was one that could have been performing in sex films as part of his experience. “
