The Internet under Surveillance: Obstacles to the free flow of information
online

Ed./Corp.: Reporters sans fronti&egrave;rs, Paris, France, Jun 2003.
URL.: http://www.rsf.fr/rubrique.php3?id_rubrique=378
Language: English, French, Spanish, German.

Self description: The Internet is the bane of all dictatorial regimes, but
even in democracies, new anti-terrorism laws have tightened government
control of it and undermined the principle of protecting journalistic
sources. This report is about attitudes to the Internet by the powerful in
60 countries, between spring 2001 and spring 2003. The preface is by Vinton
G. Cerf, who is often called the "father" of the Internet. [... Report on
China:] The number of Internet users doubles nearly every six months and the
number of websites every year. But this dizzying growth is matched by the
authorities' energetic attempts to monitor, censor and repress Internet
activity, with tough laws, jailing cyber-dissidents, blocking access to
websites, monitoring online forums and shutting down cybercaf&eacute;s.

Description: Four out of five jailed Internet activists world wide are from
China. This latest report makes it possible to compare PRC policies with
those in other countries, including Singapore, Japan, the US, the UK,
Germany, as well as other &quot;more restrictive&quot; countries such as
Vietnam (in prison: 5), the Maldives (in prison: 4), Malaysia (in prison: 1)
or Tunesia (in prison: 1).
