The contents going on over the internet shall be carefully monitored in order to avoid the diffusion of illegal and harmful content.
The Safer Internet Programme from the European Commission provides funding for activities to deal with illegal and harmful content, as part of a coherent approach by the European Union.
Also, the EU Telecommunications Council has agreed on the Safer Internet plus Programme, which aims to empower parents and teachers with internet safety tools. The 4-year programme (2005–08), proposed by the European Commission in March 2004, will have a budget of € 45 million to combat illegal and harmful internet content. The new programme also covers other media, such as videos, and explicitly addresses the fight against racism, and also “spam”. It will focus more closely on end users: parents, educators and children
