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.

This article suggests a set of responses to censorship that cabin its abuses and push it toward more legitimate methods.
