    Streisand Effect

    The Streisand Effect is now in place. In simply going to court with this there are probably more people checking out what the photos are about, so the opposite of what was apparently intended. Removing the content from Google's search engine doesn't result in removal from the internet, but apparently some people seem to think so.

    In many ways the French court and Mr Mosely seem to misunderstand how the internet functions and the impact of certain legal decisions, when it comes to what amounts to censorship.

    I am embarrassed by how backwards the French system seems to be when it comes to understanding the impact of the internet and how it functions.
