Call for More Censorship

CK - Washington   It is election season in Germany. The new call in Berlin for blocking Internet sites with downloadable movie content may be nothing but a political maneuver. What is worrisome, however, is the fact that it comes from a party speaker shortly after the federal government vowed that its new child pornography statute would be the only Internet blocking statute in Germany.
