An anonymous reader writes “According to the Irish Times, the government of Ireland — the country that recently made blasphemy a criminal offense — has had extensive talks regarding the censorship of the Internet. Details are a little sketchy, as the documents requested under the Freedom of Information were denied; however, ‘…the ongoing high level of discussion on the subject is indicated in the detailed description of each refused item in the list of materials returned by the [Department of Justice].’ Ireland seems to be following the well-trodden path blazed by the Land Down Under, justifying censorship with ‘won’t somebody think of the children!’ (and the copyright holders).”
