Between the exposure of global surveillance projects, the slow creep of censorship into our lives, the tightening of Web control and the increased power of corporations to influence what we can and cannot access online, it’s not easy to remain optimistic about the free internet.
Internet blackouts in war-torn countries, censorship masquerading as protective forces in the UKand beyond, CISPA and SOPA, lacklustre and naive attempts to stem the flow of file sharing by firms rather than tackling the core route of content access, and regulations pushed through by those who understand nothing of the web (who can forget the UK Police Commissioner’s claim that “Tor is 90 percent of the internet”?) — the list of forces attempting to wrestle control of the internet carries on.
It is these factors, rather than cybercrime or hacking, that internet experts believe pose the greatest threat to the internet in the next 20 years.
