Europe crowned as Internet Villain

By EDRi · March 10, 2005

Europe was crowned ‘Internet Villain’ of the year at the 7th Annual UK Internet Industry Award Ceremony, for “threatening the Country of Origin principle, which has encouraged e-commerce across the EU, and for the Draft Framework on Data Retention.” The awards are an initiative of the UK Internet Service Providers’ Association Council. Previous winners include the UK Home Office (twice) and Verisign. The negative price is part of a large commerce-celebrating ceremony with lots of positive prices for a.o. best light, medium or heavy consumer or business broadband provider.
