See No Evil, Shoot No Evil

French Blog Ban
The French constitutional council has approved a law that criminalises the filming or broadcasting of acts of violence by people other than professional journalists. Perpetrators face up to five years in prison and a fine of 75,000 (51,000). According to a French civil liberties group, the law could also be used against eyewitnesses who video acts of police violence, and the website operators who publish such images. – Excerpts from http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/greenslade, 08 March 2007
