An anonymous reader writes "Popular ISP's of Belgium (Telenet, Belgacom, Belnet, Mobistar, Base of Scarlet) where ordered by Belgian courts to block childporn sites. It was Minister of Enterprise and Simplification Vincent Van Quickenborne in early 2009 who called for a flexible system for blocking websites. He then negotiated with the ISPs and the Federal Computer Crime Unit (FCCU) of the federal police to a closing agreement under which websites can be blocked. Unfortunately one of the first sites to be blocked is stopkinderporno.eu (stopchildporn). When you do surf to the blocked sites you see a large stop sign and the text: "You are being redirected to this page because the website you are attempting to visit provides content considered illegal by the Belgian law." The article and the google translation, other article on same story and and its translation"
