Achievement Unlocked

Yeepee

http://streisand.okhin.fr is, according to Mr. Claude Guéant, French Minister of Interior Affairs a website that must be blocked along with https://copwatchnord-idf.org.eu (yeah, I know, they must learn how to do SSL) which is a copwatching website that has been previously censored (with a different domain name).

I need to add that I’m not a full supporter of this copwatching website, I do not like the tone of it and, while I think copwatching must be done, I do not think this is the best ethical way to do it.

So, the assignation is here and the lawyers of the main ISP are currently fighting it.

The funny part of this assignation is the §2.1.2 (page 6) where they said that collecting public information without the consent of the person concerned by those information is a violation of the 6th of January, 1978 law about personal data. Which is the case. But it’s also the case of almost all of the ‘official’ police files (as the CNIL [FR] repeatedly told them), and I’m not speaking about the shadow file that most probably exist.

The worst part is that, beyond the 34 mirrors listed (mine is the first one, Wooooot!!!), Mister Claude Guéant do want that all the ISP must extend the blockade list dynamically and without asking further details to a competent authority (so, a judge).

The way they’ll do that will probably be a DNS blockade. I’ll probably move my domain name to something else when it won’t be available. The funny part is, that my personal emails and calendar are hosted on the same domain name.
