The “Urkintalaki“-thing we have also been involved in few ways seems to have reached its goal of about 10000€ to buy the infomercial that’s going to be aired on TV nationwide next week. “Urkintalaki” – or “Snooping Act” is a law that’s about to be pushed through in Finnish government, that would allow not only companies to keep an eye on emails of the employees, but also other public organizations, like housing cooperatives etc. to do the same. That’s giving a nice kick in the nuts for the constitutional law back here in Finland, making the Land of Thousand Lakes one inch worse place to live in.
A group of Internet activists decided to do what they can, and inform as many people as possible about the legistlative proposal. I’ve seen the rough versions of the infomercials, and they are damn cool! We’ll show ‘em here as soon as they are on the Internet. Check out the Urkintalaki website for more info – in Finnish only, sorry :(
