A recent report, carried out by the advocacy group Freedom House, has taken a look at Internet trends in 60 countries. The results were that despite a pushback from activists which successfully blocked some repressive laws, web freedom still plummeted in 2012.

In 35 of those 60 countries, governments had grown their legal and technical spying powers through the web. A global decline in web freedom in 2012 was determined by broad surveillance, new legislation controlling Internet content and growing arrests of social media users. For instance, Iceland has the most web freedom. On the contrary, China, Cuba and Iran had the least.

In the meantime, declines in Internet freedom were led by 3 democracies - Brazil, India and the US. Apparently, revelations by Edward Snowden demonstrated that changes in online freedom of the United States were eroding extremely fast. Anyway, the United States still made it to 4th in Freedom House’s list.

A number of the governments have acted against the worldwide web because social media was exploited to arrange national protests. Since 2012, two dozen countries have adopted some kind of legislation restricting web freedom. For instance, Bangladesh imposed a 14-year prison sentence on a group of bloggers who wrote posts critical of Islam. Bahrain has also arrested ten people for “insulting the king on Twitter”, while Morocco jailed a teenager for 18 months for “attacking the nation’s sacred values” via a Facebook post which also ridiculed the king. Finally, a woman in India was arrested for just “liking” a friend’s Facebook status.

According to Sanja Kelly, project director for Freedom on the Net at Freedom House, banning and filtering are still the favorite methods of censorship in lots of countries, though the governments are increasingly looking at who is saying what on the Internet and finding ways to punish them. According to the report, law restricting Internet freedom are still sometimes blocked with a combination of pressure from advocates, lawyers, businesses, politicians and the international community. However, this is the 3rd consecutive year web freedom has declined.

LOL

The comment was: "People like Thackeray are born and die daily and one should not observe a 'bandh' [shutdown] for that."

zacsawyer avatarI never realized Islam and Royalty were so easily shaken by the words of lowly peasants. One swift breeze would topple their house of cards.

solyd avatarIt is obvious that web freedom would never exist. We are talking about the most severe control freaks in regards to governments, having something like the internet unchecked and unmonitered with so much activity going on, was probably giving them a nervous breakdown.

mahtin avatarMike Godwin (1994): Cyberspace may give freedom of speech more muscle than the First Amendment does. It may already have become literally impossible for a government to shut people up.

DIGITALBUTTERFLY avatarUNITY IS THE BEST DEFENSE IN SUCH INSTANCES, FOLDING OUR ARMS AND SPEWING SILENT WORDS OF PROTEST FROM A DISTANCE WHILE AN INJUSTICE IS HAPPENING ONLY MAKES THE OPPRESSOR EVEN MORE ARROGANT, I STILL BELIEVE KNOWLEDGE IS POWER SO WE MUST READ THE FINE-PRINT CAREFULLY ("FINE-PRINT" IS USED AS A METAPHOR FOR RELEVANT INFORMATION). BE WARY OF WHISTLEBLOWERS SOME OF THEM MIGHT BE PLANTS(HIRED) AS A MEANS OF JUSTIFICATION FOR THESE UNFAIR RESTRICTION BEING IMPOSED ON THE GENERAL POPULATION. PICTURE A ROTTEN APPLE IN A CROWD OF PEACEFUL PROTESTERS HIRED TO SHOOT AT THE POLICE, SO THEY CAN "LEGALLY" GUN EVERYBODY DOWN.
