UK wants Net companies to fight terror

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has set out his new national security plans, including the following:

One central issue is how to balance extremist views supporting terrorism which appear on the internet and media. The Home Secretary is inviting the largest global technology and internet companies to work together to ensure that our best technical expertise is galvanised to counter online incitement to hatred.

As I told Associated Press, this is more rhetoric than a realistic strategy.
