French Net Censorship Plan Moves Forward

"French lawmakers have voted to approve a draft law to filter Internet traffic that Slashdot previously discussed. The government says the measure is intended to catch child pornographers. The Senate, where the government has a majority, will soon give the bill a second reading. If the Senate makes no amendments to the text, that will also be its final reading, as the government has declared the bill 'urgent,' a procedural move that reduces the usual cycle of four readings to two."

Child porn and terrorists, let nothing prevent us from eliminating them from the face of the Earth.  Especially not common sense or basic rights.
