Submission + - Finland police censors vs Matti Nikki

newtley writes: "If the name Matti Nikki seems familiar, you're probably thinking of his analysis of the Sony BMG DRM spyware. He's now in the news again, but this time this software expert and activist is in trouble with Finnish police censors over kiddie porn and his case has become a major issue. As the the EFFI (Electronic Frontier Finland) puts it, "After a public outcry on the censorship practices the police decided to suspect Nikki of aiding the distribution of material violating sexual chastity." He's now slated for interrogation on Wednesday (February 20). "This is not a proud moment to be a Finn," says the EFFI, pointing out that one of the sites censored was set up in honour of the late HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana of Thailand."
