Promo Bay: Time for clarity.
Loz Kaye made the following statement regarding Promo Bay:
"The conflicting reports around access to Promo Bay in the UK show how vital it is to have transparency about court decisions and how they are carried out. It also shows how volatile public opinion is about the issue of web censorship. Politicians and companies need to start to understand that."
"We have always said that we hand courts and governments site blocking powers at our peril. We have had yet another warning. At the end of the day, discussions about art and artists are a red herring in this case. This is about what powers we want the state to have over us. In our view site blocking for commercial reasons remains ineffective and disproportionate."
