European Commission’s official impact assessment rules out Internet censorship – and cites my study

The European Commission’s impact assessment on Vice President Frattini’s Internet censorship proposals was made public on 6 November 2007.

My book was cited (10 citations of 112 total) in the report, which happily concluded that censorship was not a practical response to violent radicalisation on the Internet. This is a major event in the debate over whether to attempt to regulate online content.
