+ - Q&A with the Icelandic MP Who Wants to Ban Porn->

Submitted by Daniel_Stuckey
Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "There was an anti-censorship campaign co-spearheaded by former Wikileaks activist and Icelandic MP Birgitta Jónsdóttir together with the International Modern Media Institute, who wrote an open letter to Jónasson. It was signed by a group of 40 international human rights advocates from 19 countries, citing the potential porn ban is harmful to a democracy, “and must be protected at all costs.”

Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe with a population of 320,000. It also has the highest rate of internet users at 95 percent. If the porn ban goes through, porn will be illegal to watch in Iceland. The Icelandic government is planning to use internet filters, similar to Chinese firewalls, to block porn in the country."
