France Censors Site That Hosts Videos & Photos Of Police Misconduct | Aspectos Legales de las Tecnologías de Información | Scoop.it

In a recent ruling, a French court has ordered ISPs to block access to a website, which hosts videos and photos taken by citizens demonstrating police misconduct. Apparently, the court claims that such videos and photos, in conjunction with the names and affiliations of the officers seen, is a violation of privacy rights.
