Vaizey and the Conservatives seem to have no clue at all about the technical consequences of their political kow-tow to the media industry.

Great attitude here. There's no reason for them to act - in fact my take is that to do so would put them at greater risk - and anyway, the experience is simply training their software to resist exactly the sort of DDoS attacks being practised...

Excellent article. -- "The internet does not exist as untouchable. Morality and the rule of law do apply to the actions people do there. The question is whether those laws are appropriate. ... And the proper response, if there is "unsuitable" (unsuitable to whom, by the way?) content is to go after those who produced and distributed it. Not to seek to block access and sweep it under the rug. That's denial. Let's live in reality."

OSI has signed as an organisational signatory. It's important that the G8 leaders wake up and realise that the era when the only voices they needed to heed were corporate lobbyists has come to an end.

With the regulatory capture of the USA's copyright system pretty much complete, last year's COICA has mutated into this year's PROTECTIP with the lip service responses to criticisms of the proposed legislation actually rendering it even more harmful. The tragedy here is that there's no-one at all to speak for culture, for youth, for posterity, for artists and for the collaborative creativity of the 21st century. It seems to me there's no reform possible since all the people who would draft new approaches are in the pockets of the very industries needing regulation.

Is there really no-one in the White House who can see the irony that the US is demanding an end to state interference abroad while the Protect IP Act and the grand jury investigating Wikileaks are both in progress in the USA?

This is a very good outcome. What makes it most welcome is that it shows there's a growing number of MEPs who understand the issues surrounding the importance of the Internet to vote the right way. We need to build on this with more education and especially with positive reinforcement for those involved.

Fascinating overview of Julian Assange's motivations and philosophies which has led to some people describing him as a peaceful peer of the Unabomber...

With WikiLeaks back in the news, this story from 2009 is more relevant than ever. Having rendered WikiLeaks "illegal" last year, it's now easy to target it without causing a stir. Banning links is simply pointless as it's easily circumvented and inapplicable outside their jurisdiction. Once someone makes that clear, the next step could be to criminalise clicking on links to banned sites (perhaps as part of the proposed ISP filtering), at which point we've got to "thought police" living. This is the web equivalent of "security theatre" and it's to be despised anywhere it shows up.
