Liberation | Submitted by: Nicolas
"Et le débat se prolonge en Allemagne, où le gouverneur de Düsseldorf vient d'exiger des fournisseurs d'accès à l'Internet (FAI) de Rhénanie du Nord-Westphalie qu'ils bloquent quatre sites américains: trois sites néonazis - dont front, également au centre de la procédure française - et le site, connu pour son extrême mauvais goût, parfois drôle."
