German minister against Three-Strikes & website blocking

The German Minister of Justice Leutheusser-Scharrenberg has published a long article (Google translated) in which she defends a free internet against demands to block websites or to introduce Three-Strikes-Legislation in case of copyright violations.

She underlines that she will fight against those proposals both on the EU level as well as during the ACTA negotiations.

Nice to notice that someone in a position of power has noticed freedom of expression, which concerns all media:

the freedom to receive and impart information without interference by public authority.

Now it is only for the EU institutions to strike down censorship proposals.
