+ - France Bans People from Recording Violence

Submitted by DrEnter
DrEnter (600510) writes "According to this PC World story found on Yahoo!, the French government has made it illegal for anyone except a professional journalist to film or broadcast an act of violence. Civil liberties groups warn that the law could lead to the imprisonment of eyewitnesses who record acts of police violence, or the operators of web sites that publish them. The government is also discussing a method of government "certification" of web sites, blog hosters, mobile phone operators, and ISPs if they adhere to certain rules."
