Following up from the infograph I posted, remember this tidd-bit from Sergey Brin?
Today, the primary threat by far to internet freedom is government filtering of political dissent. This has been far more effective than I ever imagined possible across a number of nations. In addition, other countries such as the US have come close to adopting very similar techniques in order to combat piracy and other vices. I believe these efforts have been misguided and dangerous.
This came via his Google+ account and it’s very succinct, though has a hint of irony in that people see Google as being a new “Internet governance” that can filter things just like governments feel they can. Just look at their draconian filtering of torrent sites.
