In a significant show of support for Web portal Yahoo!, which faces ongoing litigation
over the sale of Nazi-related items in France via its U.S.-based Web site, several
prominent Internet industry associations and business organizations have filed a
"friend of the court" brief on behalf of Yahoo! in U.S. District Court.

The brief argues that U.S. courts may not enforce judgments of foreign courts that lack
personal jurisdiction over U.S. defendants, because to do so would violate the due
process clause of the U.S. Constitution's Fifth Amendment.

If a country wants to control what it citizens browse on the internet, it's the country resposibility to block it and of a website on a foreign country.

France should do like China and some Middle-East country's where all point of connections to other country's internet is monitored and filtered.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
