Yet another attack on freedom on the Internet: plugged the mouth within 48 hours or else ... make 13 thousand euro

By now we are accustomed. We do not make time to rejoice because an amendment like the one D'Alia is retired after a long and hard battle on the Internet, that there appeared another proposal to say the least absurd. L 'latest attempt to put a gag on the Internet. This time it is what provides the bill in terms of interceptions with regard to what are called the "computer sites" ... I will be very brief, because the text of the bill is very explanatory and indicted because if we add that on this bill, the government has placed its trust will be easy to imagine what could happen. Just read-only article. 1, paragraph 28 of the decision in order to understand the gravity of the situation dlla:

Article 8 of Law February 8, 1948, n. 47, as amended, shall be amended as follows:
a) after the third paragraph the following is added:
"For the radio or television, the statements or corrections are made ​​pursuant to Article 32 of the Consolidated Law on Radio and Television, referred to in Legislative Decree 31 July 2005, n. 177 For computer sites, the statements or corrections are published, within forty-eight hours of the request, with the same graphic characteristics, the same method of access to the site and the same visibility of the news which they refer ';

[...]

e) after the fifth paragraph shall be inserted as follows:
"Same procedure can avail the offender, if the Director of the newspaper or periodical, the head of radio, television or computer transmissions or data transmission do not publish the denial or correction request."

In a nutshell when this text is approved, you will be able to compel the owner of a blog to remove the content of an item within 48 hours of the request by those who consider themselves harmed. The fundamental problem is that in this way, in amniera very similar to what happens to the newspapers, the simple bloggers will do better not to publish content that could be uncomfortable to someone especially if you are not sure you can read e-mail in the hours and giorniseguenti in the publication. .. otherwise they will be forced to pay a rate that fluctuates between 15 and 25 million pounds of old.

For the moment I will not add anything except my indignation. But in the coming days will be back to talk about the issue in greater depth.

    Mmmm ... Beautiful shit. But it is not unconstitutional? See the entry for "freedom of expression".

    @ Napolux:
    the problem is that simple bloggers can be equated to real newspapers.
    We'll see what he thinks ... but I highly doubt sull'incostituzionalità Napolitano in a speech without a strong mobilization.

    Do not give up! Are we not in us having to go.
    However, I have some clear points of this law.
    I did not understand if the amendment request must be based (contained false, defamatory or otherwise offensive), or any request made by anyone, is considered valid.
    In the second case, from what I understand, a pincopallino whatever he writes on the site email asking me to delete an item which does not like. In order for the law to be applied shall advise the 'Competent Authority. Yeah, but what authority? In Italy there are several ...
    An 'Another point: Stefano in' article he had written: "... you'd better not publish content that could be uncomfortable, especially if you are not sure of being able to read the mail in the days following the publication"
    This means that the amendment request is valid only if submitted immediately after the publication of 'item to which it refers?
    In any case, how can we be sure of being able to read your mail?
    Often the 'ADSL and platforms that host blogs do tricks ...
    Well ... that strange law ...
