Internet revolution comes to Europe

Internet revolution comes to Europe. 44427.jpegThe Internet revolution reaches the top level of world leadership Wednesday when Facebook pioneer Mark Zuckerberg meets with President Nicolas Sarkozy on the closing day of the first "e-G8" summit.

The 27-year-old American founder of the social networking site -- on which Sarkozy himself has a page -- was due at the Elysee palace at 1000 GMT, between the president's meetings with the cabinet and the Japanese prime minister, Expatica France reports.

The French president is far from being the only one calling for a closer examination of the laws surrounding the Web. UK Prime Minister David Cameron, for example, only this week suggested that Parliament needed to take a close look at British privacy laws after Twitter users made a mockery of court orders that stop British newspapers, radio stations and TV stations from revealing the names and details of public figures who are alleged to have had affairs.

Resolutions from the eG8 forum will be presented at the G8 summit taking place in Deauville in a few days time. Sarkozy said that he hoped that the first eG8 summit will result in a healthier relationship between governments and online companies, Digitaltrends says.
