Wrangling over Copyright Protection Treaty Germany Speaks Out against Global Internet Ban for Pirates

Recent leaks suggest the 39 countries negotiating an international copyright protection treaty could require Internet service providers to ban repeat piracy offenders from using the Web. The German government, however, has now voiced its opposition to the proposal, which has been heavily criticized by civil rights activists.
"The German government will not accept any international treaty that includes blocking Internet access," says Germany's justice minister.
