[ITNews] European Parliament votes in favour of internet freedom

The European Parliament has decided that ISPs and regulators, such as Ofcom in the UK, cannot restrict individuals’ access to the internet. [...]

Jérémie Zimmermann, co-founder of La Quadrature du Net, described it as a “victory”.

"A formidable campaign from the citizens put the issues of freedoms on the internet at the center of the debates of the Telecoms Package,” he said.

“The massive re-adoption of amendment 138/46 rather than the softer compromise negotiated by rapporteur Trautmann with the Council is an even stronger statement,” he concluded.
