The European Commission has launched plans for Safer Internet Day, to  
take place next month.

The occasion, designed to promote awareness on the risks of the  
internet to users worldwide, will take place on 7 February. Vivianne  
Reding, commissioner for the information society and media, will act  
as patron of the day, which will be organised by the Insafe network,  
funded by the EU.

Among the events planned for the day is a 'global blogathon', where  
individuals and organisations will be invited to add their comments  
to a mass, multilingual blog.

Children, parents and teachers will all be encouraged to contribute  
to the blog to discuss appropriate use of new technology, both to  
encourage children to keep themselves safe but also to deter bloggers  
from breaking the law without knowing it, by reposting copyrighted  
work, for example.
