The worst of the Net

The worst of the Net
This week, a US Congressional body – the House subcommittee on global human rights – held a hearing on the involvement of American companies in the controlling of Internet access by Chinese users. The Republican Chairman of the subcommittee declared: “Cooperation with tyranny should not be embraced for the sake of profits.” Hear, hear. We need to sort out those commie Chinese. But there is a more serious issue that American politicians and industry are not adequately addressing. The UK’s Internet Watch Foundation found last year that 40% of all reports of child abuse images on the Net were hosted in the United States. Why are there no hearings on this?
