E.U. legislators oppose a U.S. court’s decision regarding the diffusion of Nazi-related content over the Internet. By a unanimous vote of its Parliamentary Assembly in Strasbourg, the European Council approved a proposal stating that an Internet site directed at the audience of another nation cannot be protected by freedom of expression laws of the host nation. The move came after a U.S. court ruled last week that Yahoo does not have to comply with a French court order that Yahoo prevent French users from accessing a broad range of Nazi-related material on its Web site.
