Berlusconi moves to impose Internet regulation

Berlusconi moves to impose Internet regulation By COLLEEN BARRY, AP Business Writer – Fri Jan 22, 2:06 pm ET - MILAN – "Silvio Berlusconi is moving to extend his grip on Italy's media to the freewheeling Internet world of Google and YouTube.

Going beyond other European countries, the premier's government has drafted a decree that would mandate the vetting of videos for pornographic or violent content uploaded by users onto such sites as YouTube, owned by Google, and the France-based Dailymotion, as well as blogs and online newsmedia.
"

More scary stuff from the world of greedy tyrants. Between the corporations and the governments, the 'Net is going to become unreachable/unusable for 98% of the world population. They want to control it and use it to suck out as much money as they can.

And it looks like they are winning.
