Opposition to multiracialism, homosexuality, immigration effectively banned under new Internet rules.
BRUSSELS, Belgium - The European Union will be launching new Internet broadcasting rules later this year.
"The European Commission had a duty to protect shared European values," EU Information Society Commissioner Viviane Reding (pictured) told a broadcasting conference in Liverpool, England. "Who in this room... stands for the freedom to spread incitement to racial hatred on the new media?"
Reding said there was a "broad consensus that hate speech rules should also apply to the Internet."
