+ - EU Proposes Their Own "Great Firewall"-> 1 1

H3xx writes: The EU is proposing a region-wide firewall to be erected in order to block "illicit contents" on a continental scale. Critics say that abuses would be more than easy, given the controversies surround the Chinese counterpart. The proponents of such a firewall have been called "clueless" by critic and blogger Glyn Moody, saying, "A big hint of that cluelessness is that these people are still using the term 'cyberspace' *seriously* in 2011, as is the fact that they actually think it’s possible to create a ‘single secure European cyberspace’ with ‘virtual borders’ and ‘virtual access points'."
