Submission + - Dutch party votes for internet filtering (

tulcod writes: The Dutch government has accidentally passed a law on net neutrality, enabling ISPs to filter internet traffic based on "ideological motives". The PvdA (labor party) accidentally voted for this exception to the Telecomwet (telecommunications law), which, on its own, does not allow such filtering. PvdA intends to repair their mistake.

Submission + - Is copyright a good thing? 1

tulcod writes: Recently, someone at my school, a man who's about 60 years old, told me his opinion (in person) about copyrights. He clearly thinks copyrighting is a bad thing. I doubt he's part of the scene (and it seems implausible he has ever downloaded, for example, music), but there are probably a lot of people agreeing with him. I don't really know what to think of it. Obviously, pretty much all of us have ever "stolen" media. But I think it's implausible any of us did that with objective goals. So is the old man at school correct? Is copyright a bad thing for everyone?
