Italy plunders internet video

A partir du 27 janvier, en vertu d’un d??cret qui vient d’??tre adopt?? par sa majorit?? parlementaire, les sites diffusant r??guli??rement des contenus audiovisuels devront d??sormais demander une autorisation au minist??re des communications pour distribuer ces vid??os sur Internet.

Starting January 27 2010 in Italy, sharing videos online is forbidden by default and requires government permission.
It is unacceptable in this day and age for any government to take such steps, invading on freedom of speech. I don’t know that the Italian government pretended to provide any, but I’m sure they will find some spin.
As far as I can tell, no mention of this in US media yet.
