The Internet – A Lawless Prairie

Wow, after Senator Ted called the Internet a series of tubes, this is the next interesting description. This time it comes from a judge in Milan, Italy. In her description of her judgement against Google, for an objectionable Video case which made its way into Google Video.

“With images of the Wild West evidently in mind, Judge Oscar Magi wrote in a 111-page explanation of his decision to convict the Google executives: “There is no such thing as the limitless prairie of Internet where everything is permitted and nothing can be prohibited, on pain of a global excommunication by the people of the Web.”

Wow. Read the article on MacWorld here.
