Countries Team Up To Better Censor The Internet
from the best-practices-in-authoritarian-control dept
It appears that a bunch of countries not exactly known for encouraging freedom of speech are teaming up to share best practices on censoring the internet. China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan will work together -- though, it's not entirely clear to what end. They claim that it's to help fight technologies that could do "serious harm to individual, social and national security." Of course, that description is broad enough to cover both censorship... and dealing with internet security. To these countries, there might not be much of a difference.
