Chinese, U.S. Condemn Censorship


Recommended Posts

More reactions both at home and abroad to the censorship issue. picaro writes "According to the BBC, 'party elders' in China released an open letter decrying the current state of censorship in China, and suggesting that 'history demonstrates that only a totalitarian system needs news censorship, out of the delusion that it can keep the public locked in ignorance.'" LWATCDR writes "The US government is upset over restrictions of freedom of speech on the Internet. The United States, has 'very serious concerns' about the protection of privacy and data throughout the Internet globally, and in particular, some of the recent cases raised in China."slashdot?g=3698

It seems like there are a lot of conflicts between freedom of speech, freedom of information, and laws to protect intellectual property. I am concerned that corporate interests in intellectual property protection may overextend their reach and lead to an internet in which less and less information is actually free.
