Finland has also a system that is blocking so called childporn sites at the ISP level. Instead of taking the police at their word, someone tested the sites and published his report. His sites was blocked for it and called a childporn portal by the police. There is an investigation going on against him but he hasn't been heard yet. It shows that such a listing would need some democratic oversight if it is going to work and be accepted.
"Being presented as an administrator of an illegal child porn portal and as someone who is distributing child porn images from a web site is one of the most offending things I can imagine. Seriously speaking, people have been killed and murders have been attempted for mere suspicion of pedophilia, so these unfounded accusations could end up having severe consequences for me! Due to grave seriousness of these accusations, and the fact that police authority has been used to present these views to thousands of people who try to visit my site, I think it fits the definition of "aggravated defamation" as defined in the penal code of Finland" source So would he be blocked by the Belgian filters to come ?
and also in Finland there is mission creep
"One newspaper quoted the head of Ministry of Social Affairs and Health claiming that the censorship system is already used to block access to money laundering sites in addition to child porn. The law only permits censoring of child porn and the police wants to give an impression that they're only censoring material that the law permits them to. However, when asked directly if they're censoring money laundering sites, there's no answer at all. Either they're hiding something, or they're just too indifferent to answer the question" same source
and proof that the definition of childporn is used to block any access to any sites with links to sex with people under the national accepted age is here for Finland
"Answer: Notions of what is considered child porn differ. Because the age of consent in Finland [ed.note: for porn] is 18 years, the blocking measures can also include pages in which there are exclusively people who have passed the puberty. Additionally the blocking measures are also targeted towards sites which contain a functioning link to a page that contains child pornography. The blocklist contains only a fraction of all the pornography on the Internet anyway." same source
The list can be checked here, but a year later about half of it isn't functional or isn't used anymore. So on 700 sites only half of it is really worth longtime blocking. If you read the list you will see that there are a lot of sites that seem to be just pornsites (or not at all) - maybe infected with underage links of pix. It is normal that the webadministrator hasn't renewed his research as the police is still investigating him.
and how effective is that list
"By February 19, a group of Finns had gone through Nikki's list of 1047 censored websites and published their research, according to which nine of the sites contained child pornography, nine were unrelated to pornography, 28 had content hard to categorize as legal or illegal, 46 were (legal) child modeling sites and 879 contained only legal pornography."
Is that what will happen if a Belgian will investigate the list of blocked sites ? Freedom of speech online will be diminished once again.
