Und noch eine Meldung, die Beachtung verdient:
The Berkman Center for Internet & Society is pleased to share the OpenNet Initiative (ONI)’s annual roundup of “top instances of filtering, surveillance, and information warfare around the globe”:
2010 was an eventful year with respect to filtering and surveillance. “Among the year’s most well-known events are the banning of Blackberry services across Saudi Arabia, India, Bahrain, and other countries in the region as governments demanded increased access to data on RIM devices; the blocking of Facebook in multiple countries in response to ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’; tensions between Google and China; and the filtering of Wikileaks in parts of the Middle East in response to the organization’s release of United States diplomatic cables.”
Visit the ONI blog for more summary and background on the 2010 Year in Review, as well as links to recent research, including the ONI’s Access Controlled: The Shaping of Power, Rights, and Rule in Cyberspace, the extensive sequel to Access Denied.
