Sample text

Many of the countries listed in our first report denied that they were in fact blocking access to Internet content or had any connection to attacks on services. 6 We have subsequently come to learn that these anomalies were, in fact, emerging norms. Since our research for Access Denied was conducted, a sea change has occurred in the policies and practices of Internet controls. States no longer fear pariah status by openly declaring their intent to regulate and control cyberspace. The convenient rubric of terrorism, child pornography, and cyber security has contributed to a growing expectation that states should enforce order in cyberspace, including policing unwanted content.

And yet, in spite of this increasingly constrained environment, the Internet remains accessible and relatively free from filtering. The ONI has tested extensively through the CIS region, far deeper and more regularly in fact than in any other region in the world. To date we have documented traditional “Chinese-style” Internet filtering—the deliberate and static blocking of Internet content and services by state sanction—only in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.
