Submission + - MEP wants to eliminate anonymity on the internet (google.com)

m94mni writes: The European Parliament wants to monitor your internet searches for child porn offenders, as previously reported (http://tech.slashdot.org/story/10/06/02/2317241/EU-To-Monitor-All-Internet-Searches). The declaration was adopted yesterday, and in an interview with the Swedish news outlet Europaportalen.se the Italian MEP Tiziano Motti behind declaration shares his views on internet and anonymity. In essence, Motti wants to completely eliminate anonymity on the internet. "Each upload of text, images or video clips must be tracable by the authorities", says Motti. This is in line with the secretive UN intitiative Q6/17, revealed two years ago (http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-10040152-38.html). Is the decisive fight for anonymity on the internet coming closer?
