Submission + - Europe wants to block search of dangerous keywords

nlann writes: One week after three mens were arrested in Germany while assembling a massive bomb, Reuters is quoting EU Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini.

In the phone interview, Frattini declared: ``I do intend to carry out a clear exploring exercise with the private sector ... on how it is possible to use technology to prevent people from using or searching dangerous words like bomb, kill, genocide or terrorism''.

When questioned about privacy, Frattini answered: ``Frankly speaking, instructing people to make a bomb has nothing to do with the freedom of expression, or the freedom of informing people''.
