Censorship v3.1
May-June 2013 (vol. 17 no. 3)
pp. 26-33
Derek E. Bambauer, University of Arizona
Internet censorship has evolved. In Version 1.0, censorship was impossible; in Version 2.0, it was a characteristic of repressive regimes; and in Version 3.0, it spread to democracies who desired to use technology to restrain unwanted information. Its latest iteration, Version 3.1, involves near-ubiquitous censorship by democratic and authoritarian countries alike. This article suggests a set of responses to censorship that cabin its abuses and push it toward more legitimate methods.
