Mozilla says its baffled by the UK Internet Services Providersí Association following the trade group's decision to nominate of the public benefit browser maker as the internet's 2019 villain of the year.

The UK ISPA earlier this week proposed Mozilla, self-styled defender of internet freedom, as a black hat for its "proposed approach to introduce DNS-over-HTTPS in such a way as to bypass UK filtering obligations and parental controls, undermining internet safety standards in the UK."

Have to wait to see how this shakes out ... but personally I rather like the concept of DNS-over-HTTPS.

When two desires clash ...

Especially in the EU. Lot of things are in total contradictions. You must not collect personal information, but in the other hand you have to be able to reveal the identity of a user if requested by the justice. Privacy protection, security of transmissions, but at the same time, from time to time, the EU wants to ban https and other kind of encrypted transmission to uncover terrorists exchanges for example.
