: European Parliament Launches Internet Censorship Project
: The European Parliament has awarded Surrey-based Smith
: System Engineering a contract to investigate the feasibility
: of jamming or censoring pornography and racism on the
: Internet. The consultants will work with legal and social
: policy experts over a period of six months. A recent study,
: based on one sample of Internet traffic using a European
: search facility, showed that 47 percent of queries logged by
: the indexing system were related to pornography. "The
: passing of pornography and racist material over the Internet
: has been recognised as a serious social issue by all
: countries within the EU," said Alan Pitman, project leader.
