Iceland’s porn ban ‘conflicts with the idea of a free society’, say critics

Anti-censorship campaigners have called on Iceland to ditch its proposals to ban pornography online and in print, labelling the plans “an affront to the basic principles of society”.An open letter co-ordinated by Iceland’s International Modern Media Institute, signed by activists and academics from 19 countries, claimed the proposals have “already jeopardised longstanding efforts to prevent censorship in totalitarian regimes worldwide”. The International Modern Media Institute is chaired by Icelandic MP Birgitta Jónsdóttir, the former WikiLeaks activist.
