Policy of Internet Censorship

Internet censorship is the control or prohibition of materials that anyone can publish on the internet or download them from online. Internet censorship has the same legal basis as that of press censorship. Its basic difference is the fact that the national network boundaries are blurred: people of the country, where some information is prohibited (unless it is filtered) can be found on the websites located on servers in other countries. It is very difficult to expose internet censorship due to the very nature of the Global Network. The usage of aliases and the presence of so-called bays of data do not allow to completely identifying the affiliation of the content and physically remove it.

Because the internet is not under control of a certain state, its resources are distributed between pluralities of business organizations. A comprehensive internet censorship is quite complex, but feasible. It is done with a combined usage of the following measures:

  • The concentration of network communications management in the hands of the state or the real levers of influence on the company in charge of the network beyond the borders of the state. This allows policymakers to prohibit users view the contents, which are supposed to be undesirable.
  • Granting of the access to internet resources controlled by companies dependent on the willingness of companies to control the content of resources, removing or editing posts that are subject to the censorship of the authorities. As a result, companies that support, for example, network blogging system, are faced with a choice: either give in to blackmail and censor information or stop and lose users. Concerned about the development of their business, major internet companies often come to an agreement with the governments that practice internet censorship so as not to lose the market, even contradicting their own policy of freedom of expression.
  • Government also has the ability to control the content of some internet resources through shell companies, non-governmental organizations, or individuals who, under various pretexts censor information.

Censorship of the internet means not only blocking or closing of any web resources, but also the implementation of traffic analysis, organization of pseudo-opposition web resources and the use of punitive measures against the authors of publications or owners of web servers.

Except for total control over the junction of the national network with the world ones, in some countries, such as China, North Korea, Iran and others, it is technically difficult to overcome the distributed structure of the internet through the forces of one state.

Internet censorship is the control or prohibition of materials that anyone can publish on the internet or download them from online. Internet censorship has the same legal basis as that of press censorship.
