Submission + - Czech EU Presidency a Disaster for the Internet? (

Glyn Moody writes: "The first details of the tech priorities of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union have emerged — and they don't look good. As well as "protecting" intellectual monopolies, the Czechs want to push through the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), build on the efforts of the preceding French Presidency (such as "Three Strikes and You're Out") and — of course — shield children from "illegal" content online. Could this be the worst EU presidency for the Internet so far?"
