Experts doubt EU plan to block bomb recipes on Web

A European Union proposal to stop people from accessing bomb-making instructions online is fraught with technical difficulties, if not downright unworkable, Internet practitioners say.EU Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini says he is working on plans that would block Web searches for bomb recipes and oblige Internet service providers to prevent access to sites containing them.

Some in the Internet industry are adamant that such ideas are doomed to fail.”They will not work because it doesn’t make sense to block something,” Harald Summa, chief executive of the association of German Internet enterprises, Eco, told Reuters.
