The report that will surely lead to Commons editors claiming that it is an evil American conspiracy against their rights to freaky sex. With bestiality outlawed, how can they justify any pictures?

Anyone else think this guy has to be a Wikipedia editor?

However the move has aroused the ire of zoophile group ZETA.

Lobbyist Michael Kiok, who lives with his dog Cassie, told the newspaper there were more than 100,000 zoophiles in Germany.

"Mere morals have no place in law," he said.


Hilarious stuff. All laws are based on morals. Otherwise, you wouldn't have any laws. Morals determine a right and a wrong and laws codify it. What nonsense.

Germany will also expand copyright law against Google and others that include snippets of news articles without sharing any of the profits with the newspaper.

Looks like Wikimedia Germany is going to start having fits.

Even if you didn't base that law on morals it should be based on cleanliness and who gross that activity is, and some peoples also lack self controls and need to be saved from themselves. I'm generally not in favor of regulations but here i make an exception.
