U.K. to Require ISPs to Control Websites of Terrorist Supporters

Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced that the U.K. Government would introduce controls on websites supporting terrorist activities as well as stricter physical controls of public places:

"Brown said Internet and technology companies will be asked to help stop online terrorist propaganda, and he announced that a meeting would be convened with leading British Internet service providers to find ways of doing that.

Along with possibly removing customers' sites, service providers also might be pressured to block ones hosted abroad. The government also could create a list of banned sites or try to persuade search engines like Google Inc. or Yahoo Inc. to filter out prohibited content from their search results."
