For starters the title of the article in Gulf News is in fact "Keeping internet access safe from terror and danger"
"Each of the Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Etisalat and du, are required by law to have a proxy programme where certain keywords are checked: sex, terrorism, dating, drugs, alcohol, pornography, and gambling, among others.
These keywords are mandatory by international laws in describing each and every single website."
Is anyone else aware of any international laws regarding keywords?
The final paragraph is quite interesting too...
"The big picture is to be developed and to be in the lead of this century. But knowledge and development doesn't mean ethic-free life or morale-free life. There are certain morals that the UAE government is obliged to protect."
