Leaked proposals show ISPs may have to police the internet – 22 Feb 2010 – Computeractive

A leaked document, said to be part of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (Acta), proposes to force internet service providers (ISPs) to police the internet.

Peter Hustinx, European data protection supervisor (EDPS) slammed the Acta document in a statement today.

“Intellectual property is important to society and must be protected [but] it should not be placed above individuals’ fundamental rights to privacy and data protection,” he said.

According to La Quadrature du Net if the leaked US Acta internet chapter proposal is authentic, it confirms its and other civil rights organisations’ worst fears.
