EU Fighting To Keep The Internet Free?

Posted: 05th Mar, 2004 By: MarkJ
The Italian minister for innovation and technologies, Lucio Stanca, has spoken out in opposition of allowing governments to set Internet policies:

The Internet's growth as a marketplace of more than 750 million users during the past decade has been helped by the decision to allow it to grow at its own pace with little interference from government, Lucio Stanca, Italian minister for innovation and technologies, told reporters via a conference call.

This existing regime should not be tinkered with, he said in summing up the position of the 15-nation European Union bloc.

"Government must be involved only when public policy issues are at stake, but it is not the role of government to manage the Internet or to interfere in its free development," Stanca said.


It’s the first time we’ve heard any official talk quite like that - from a more inclusive perspective of several countries. We wonder whether such views are really quite so widely shared? More @ ZDNet.
