MPs have demanded that ISPs do more to clamp down on violent extremist material helping to promote a surge in Internet radicalization. It turned out that the Home Affairs Select Committee found that the web is the predominant breeding ground for extremist activity, representing more of a risk than prisons or universities.
That’s why the Parliament is now demanding that Internet service providers should be actively designing codes of practice in order to help policing material which could be regarded as promoting violent extremist activity. Nevertheless, the definition is quite loose: the authorities describe extremism along with the common suspects as “vocal or active opposition to fundamental national values”. They insist that more resources should be directed to those threats and to “preventing radicalization through the web and in private spaces.
The committee admitted that although in almost all cases “extremist activity” would necessitate face to face contact, the web still played an important role in allowing that radicalization to take place. That’s why the Parliament has told Internet service providers that they should do more to filter violent content from the Internet.
In other words, MPs want the entertainment industry to suggest its own self-regulatory guidelines. Meanwhile, everyone can feel the tension running high over greater powers to filter content, especially with the ACTA coverage on the Internet. The Parliament is adamant that heightened caution should be maintained over the terrorist threat.
YouTube was criticized for allowing extremist material to be uploaded. The streaming service responded with a flagging system, but admitted that there were many difficulties in policing huge amounts of information which was uploaded every day.
The industry observers agree that putting such a responsibility on broadband providers would cause a considerable change in the role of the organizations involved, which may cause controversy in deciding which material can be deemed unacceptable. In addition, there are still a number of arguments about free speech, particularly with the government's loosely defined notions of extremism. The only thing the ISPs and the authorities agree upon is that handling extremism effectively (without compromising human rights) can appear quite a delicate issue.

|well maybe the BRITISH govenment should be more focusessed on the KNOWN terrorist ther BAILING rather nat internet crap u can always turn the pc off wat can u do with a radical muslic? aprt from putting one in his cranium NOT a great deal tbqf|
|haha who cares what these retards say they are just trying to suppress freedom of information they are using the "terrorist" angle to try and filter the net but then the country is run by zionists so what can you do its not like you can take the dirty jew and put a bullet in his head|
|Here's an idea: Don't let them into the country in the first place. Failing that, kick them out as soon as they start inciting hatred and murder of British citizens and let them seek political asylum somewhere else. Where? Well, they could always try going to the type of country they *say* they'd prefer to live in, away from all of our Western immorality. Oh, that's right, you probably don't get state handouts in Saudi Arabia, do you? More like state hand *offs*.|
Honestly, I'm sick and tired of this minority of medieval brain-wrongs taking up so much attention in our media. Sick and tired.
|True Don and livensflame..|
The one thing for some reason is not mentioned in Britain is at certain times of the days they block off street; get on their rugs and point their azz in the air.
Friend while there told me they hear all this wailing and saw backed up traffic and when they went around the bldg. corner were confronted with a sea of azz'a pointing in the air. They told me they were heading for a bite and lost their appetite when again confronted with a sea of butcracks in their face.
I am sure all the gay Boi's love that..LMFAO.. Makes you wish for a auto 12 gauge loaded with rock salt..
|There is no worry, it really doesn't matter what the islumic Terrorists say. If you take notice, the only targets they have intelligence enough to attack anymore are in their own countries, and the majority of those are innocent bystanders. Every time they communicate we learn more and more. They are becoming weaker as we grow stronger through intelligence gathering. They are too backward to win...|
|Omg, first yes your right if they (terrorists, or suspected?) so much as fart in public send them out of the country. But as for we are winning the war what world are you living in don’t you realise that if any of these idiots really wanted to they could kill the lot of us in 30 minutes don’t be fooled my friends if you think uncle Sam and his friends know what they are doing forget it first of all you are putting your faith in the weakest state in the world for action against terrorists, shame they spend so much time tracking down dodgy movies o yea there, s money involved in that. Don’t forget when the u.s.a. was looking for binn laden there president was on the board of a large building firm that just happened to be called laden construction and I wonder who ran that, so with that sort of contact you would have thought they could have found the guy a bit quicker.no there isn’t a simple answer|
|YEP it's all about censoring free speech by restricting “vocal or active opposition to fundamental national values”.|
Good job our fundamental national values are not those of the Hitler youth movement!
