EFFI: Finland rewrote the Internet censorship law
The Finnish parliament has substantially revised a controversial
law proposal on restrictions to the freedom of speech. Initially
the proposal was seen as a threat to the free communications in
the Internet. It was feared any publisher or service provider
would have had to log practically all Internet traffic, archive
all publications for up to three months and even monitor
discussion groups.
