Before moving to Italy, I thought we would have access to everything we could find on the World Wide Web in the United States.
I was clearly wrong.
In our case, it had more to do with syndication and copyright of media content, since we were trying to watch a few American television programs. None the less, it was eye opening to find that the World Wide Web wasn’t as global as we originally thought.
In fact, since moving to Italy, the Prime Minister “is pushing through new measures that would give the state control over online video content and force anyone who regularly uploads videos to obtain a license from the Ministry of Communications.” This would even apply to bloggers. You can see how quickly and easily it would be to slide down this slippery slop.
