German Internet law gains passage

BONN, Germany (AP) - Germany passed a law Friday to keep out cyberspace smut and Nazi propaganda, but critics said it was still too vague on what responsibilities on-line services had for content they didn't create or control. Also aimed at boosting electronic commerce, the law penalizes on-line providers for providing a venue for material that is illegal in Germany even if it originated beyond Germany's borders. Research and technology minister Juergen Ruettgers said children must be protected against material deemed offensive.
