Netherlands: DPI is Needed to Block Illegal Web Sites

The Future of Copyright web site reports that "The Dutch government is considering monitoring all internet traffic by means of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). Thus stated State Secretary for Security and Justice Fred Teeven to the Dutch House of Representatives last Thursday."

See "UPDATE: Dutch government considers DPI on internet traffic" - here.

"According to the ministry, DPI brings the advantage of knowing where internet traffic is directed. This makes room for the possibility of blocking access to only the illegal parts of a website instead of blocking a whole domain [see why - here] which may contain both illegal and legal information"
