Swiss Parliament approved internet blocking
When is it acceptable to block a website? The answer seems to be when it an unlicensed gambling website. The Swiss Parliament approved internet blocking in those circumstances on 1st March, according to swissinfo.ch.
It was also decided at the same time by the House of Representatives that only an online casino resident in Switzerland could receive an online licence.
The only way to control internet gambling websites is to take them down, or tolerate them. The People’ Party showed some resistance but other than that it was plain sailing.
