For "community [ ] organisations" they don't seem very much in tune with "the community", do they?
Nothing new there then, the NSPCC et al have to keep the pressure on or their State Funding might dry up.
Policymaking with the aid of government funded pressure groups - more incest than you'll ever find online!
If you think an AT can be controlled properly, would you ride a motorcycle with one (outside of CVT scooters)?
You can't engrave a clipped waveform onto vinyl; even if the cutter were able to follow such a path, the needle would jump out of the groove on encountering it.
Indeed. And another problem with the UK's censorship is that you don't even know the site is censored - they just falsely return a fake 404 error.
This behaviour is down to the ISP - Demon gives a '403 Forbidden' with an explanation and links.
The block is implemented via DNS - avoiding it is trivial. It's a sop to the Government, rather than an effective censor.
In fact, as things stand, we may have the best of it. The Government have their 'block', ISPs are 'doing something' and we have our Internet. All of it.
Do it right and light can be strong, too.
"Phorm's Open Internet Exchange is an online broker that matches advertisers with publishers, much like Google or Yahoo!. The difference is that rather than target your interests using data you volunteer via web searches and by using free email services, Phorm is paying your ISP to hand over data on your browsing habits direct. The technology has roots in spyware, but the company insists it is setting a new "gold standard" in privacy online and emphasises that ISP customers will be able to opt-out./blockquote

Per Kaarup, a good friend of mine who has been running a Danish WordPress blog about his two dogs received an letter from Krak.dk stating that they were going to charge him 5625 DKK (about 940 USD) because he linked to their site.
Per, for the last two years, has had a link in the footer of his web page, and on his contact page, to a page on Krak.dk which displayed his home. This page has a small copyright notice on the map section of the page itself stating in Danish that it is copyright and you can’t use it.
Per was not using the map, he was directly linking to the page on which it is displayed, and the page itself is much more than just the map.
How long before other sites start doing this?. Full story."
