EU finanziert vertrauliche Studien über eine Art permanente Rasterfahnung im Internet

Auf wurde ein als “vertraulich” eingestuftes Paper der Universität York veröffentlicht, das die Entwicklung einer von der EU finanzierten intelligenten Rasterfahndung beschreibt, die Blogs, Chats, Nachrichtenseiten und Social-Networks durchschnorchelt, um automatisiert Akten über Personen,  Organisationen und deren Beziehungen anzulegen:

“The aim of work package 4 (WP4) is the development of key technologies that facilitate the building of an intelligence gathering system by combining and extending the current-state-ofthe- art methods in Natural Language Processing (NLP). One of the goals of WP4 is to propose NLP and machine learning methods that learn relationships between people and organizations through websites and social networks. Key requirements for the development of such methods are: (1) the identification of entities, their relationships and the events in which they participate, and (2) the labelling of the entities, relationships and events in a corpus that will be used as a means both for developing the methods.”

Nun heißt es nicht mehr die Regierung könnte uns alle an Hand unserer Datenspuren analysieren sondern sie finanziert dazu bereits Forschungsvorhaben.

Petition für Netzneutralität in Europa


This petition is up for signature in light of the decisions affecting the open Internet being taken at European level, and in reaction to the statement made in the USA on 21 September by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. If you believe Europe also merits an Internet that is free and open according to the following principles, please sign this petition and share it with your friends using the “Share it” links below:

1. Internet users are entitled to access, send and receive the content of their choice;
2. Internet users are entitled to use and run applications and services of their choice;
3. Internet users are entitled to connect their choice of software or hardware that do not harm the network;
4. Internet users are entitled to choice and competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers;
5. Internet users are entitled to an Internet connection that is free of discrimination with regard to type of application, service or content or based on sender or receiver address. Broadband providers cannot block or degrade traffic over their networks, or pick winners by favoring some content or applications over others in the connection to subscribers’ homes. Nor can they disfavor an Internet service just because it competes with a similar service offered by them.
6. Providers of Internet access must be transparent about their network management practices and Internet users are entitled to an Internet connection with a predefined capacity and quality.

These principles should be enshrined in European and national laws, and enforced by the relevant authorities in a consistent manner across Europe. (deutsche Übersetzung)
