“Child pornography is great,” the man said enthusiastically. “Politicians do not understand file sharing, but they understand child pornography, and they want to filter that to score points with the public. Once we get them to filter child pornography, we can get them to extend the block to file sharing.”

The date was May 27, 2007, and the man was Johan Schlüter, head of the Danish Anti-Piracy Group (Antipiratgruppen). He was speaking in front of an audience from which the press had been banned; it was assumed to be copyright industry insiders only. It wasn’t. Christian Engström, who’s now a Member of the European Parliament, Oscar Swartz, and I were also there.

“My friends,” Schlüter said. “We must filter the Internet to win over online file sharing. But politicians don’t understand that file sharing is bad, and this is a problem for us. Therefore, we must associate file sharing with child pornography. Because that’s something the politicians understand, and something they want to filter off the Internet.”

“We are developing a child pornography filter in cooperation with the IFPI and the MPA so we can show politicians that filtering works,” he said. “Child pornography is an issue they understand.” Schlüter grinned broadly.

So, what numerous people have been saying for years, is now finally being confirmed. How morally low can you go to 'turn a profit'?

Isn't filtering it, and blocking sites actually protecting predators, and creating a false sense of security for parents?

Can it be that this guy and many lawmakers aren't just after profits, but pedophiles themselves?

Now I think that would be stretching it a bit much, but not impossible.

The censorship actually make child-porn more easily accessible for dedicated people as blocking is easy to bypass and it effectively lists all sources.

Classic problem-reaction-solution in action. In Britain there was similar stunt with pedophilia scare, thus plans were to proceed in nation-wide database for those working with children so one can check for pedophilia-suspects. I wonder if database of convicted persons only would do the same... I checked and the plans apparently got halted but it wasn't far away.

Remember, any time someone says "There ought to be a law" what they're saying is: "Please stop me."
