Network Solutions’ Double Standard

I don’t imagine Network Solutions would be so quick to shut down a website critical of the Bible or the Torah. Even so, since when is Network Solutions chartered with monitoring speech on the Web? I looked up their Acceptable Use Policy and it’s a stretch to suggest that this film or any other could fit one of the specific sections.

The truth is more like Network Solutions simply caving to extremist pressure.

A U.S.-based web service, which Islam critic and Dutch right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders planned to use to show his film critical of the Koran, said on Saturday that it had inactivated the site due to complaints.

“This site has been suspended while Network Solutions is investigating whether the site’s content is in violation of the Network Solutions Acceptable Use Policy,” the company said on the site www.fitnathemovie.com.
