Blackout Europe - 21/04/2009, 05:15There is voting going on in the EU which will allow ISPs to decide which sites people are able to visit - much like cable operators have "channel" packages. This contradicts the open nature on the Internet, not to mention people's rights to equal access, and may very well be considered a first step into an Orwellian system (not that we're that free now though..)
The info is available on the site: www.blackouteurope.eu.

When part of the Internet is affected, on the long run all the Internet is affected.
