Internet sites to be obliged to cancel defamatory material

Measure in amendment to bill approved by Senate committee

(ANSA) - Rome, June 24 - An amendment tabled Tuesday to a bill on defamation would oblige Internet sites and search engines to cancel "defamatory content" or personal data of people whose reputations have been blackened.
    Should they refuse to cancel the defamatory material a magistrate will be able to order them to do so, under the amendment tabled by Silvio Berlusconi's opposition centre-right Forza Italia party in the bill approved in the justice committee of the Senate.
