That Irish Sopa ‘Consultation Process’

A ‘Concerned Internet User’ writes:

So Sean Sherlock is looking for people to contact the Irish Internet Association as they will ‘moderate an online consultation‘ about the ‘Irish Sopa’ Statutory Instrument (which became law last night).

The IIA has two members of staff. One is the association’s president, the other is the events organiser.

The president, Joan Mulvihill (above) is on the Fine Gael executive council. and is on record as stating that her association cannot take a stance as they represent content creators and businesses that operate using the internet.

Have a look at today’s Tweets on the official IIA account and Joan’s own.

Wouldn’t hold out much hope for impartiality there.
