Online Censorship

It looks like censorship is on the rise not only in countries with oppressive government regimes, but also in Western countries like UK and Australia.

“Online journalism has changed the media landscape and the way we communicate with each other,” said CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon. “But the power and influence of this new generation of online journalists has captured the attention of repressive governments around the world, and they have accelerated their counterattack.”

The protection of children is a must, but it should come first from the parents, who should in one way or the other, control what their children do online.

From pornography to limiting free speech the road is short.
"Should any private organization have a say over what is decent and what you are allowed to see? Should the government?"

What are the limits of freedom?
