Iran/Internet – Under pressure, Iranian MPs postpone internet restriction bill (Al Jazeera)

Maziar Motamedi writes for Al Jazeera: Iran’s parliament has suspended its review of a highly controversial bill that a minister, citizens and businesses say will only lead to more internet restrictions in the country. The bill, first proposed three years ago, is titled “Protecting Users in Cyberspace and Organising Social Media” but critics say it is aimed at introducing more controls in a country where most prominent global services are already banned.
