Mozilla boss warns off Internet police

The Grande Mozzerella of the Mozilla Project, Mitchell Baker is worried about the way the Internet is policed.

"The increase in laws make it difficult to run an open network," she said.

Baker claimed ISPs were expected to carry too much responibility for the content they carry.

"You suddenly become liable for anything that gets downloaded, whether it's legal or not," she said.

Road to nowhere
"If you said to a municipality, if you build a road, you have to guarantee nothing illegal happens on it. That's what's happening on the Internet now. So that's the kind of regulatory disruption that's going to have some long-term consequences."

Baker was speaking at a conference on digital innovation and creative ideas.
