Estonia Tops The List Of Internet Freedom

Estonia Tops The List Of Internet Freedom

Online censorship has come to plague the internet access, even in some of the most developed nations. The reason that is often touted, as an excuse, is national security. In such turbulent times, it is rather surprising to note that Estonia bests the rest of the world when it comes to internet freedom.

Crowd-Sourcing Website Launched By US Lawmakers To Create ‘Digital Bill Of Rights’

Crowd-Sourcing Website Launched By US Lawmakers To Create ‘Digital Bill Of Rights’

The internet freedom has been increasingly threatened by the bills such as SOPA and PIPA which were meant to somehow ‘control’ the web and selectively censor it upon the whim of authorities and different organizations. It was about time that a proper set of regulations be devised to keep such evils at bay in the future. A new venture aims to do precisely this.

Finding A Solution To The Problem Of Piracy – A New Monetization Model For Content Producers

The issue of piracy has been making content producers lose their sleep (and dollars), turning their lives into a hellish nightmare, even when they get enough to keep them going (well enough). The web populace is currently divided as to whether or not piracy is ethical and that how far should it be permitted.

The Pirate Bay Contemplates Launching Flying Computers Over International Waters

The Pirate Bay Contemplates Launching Flying Computers Over International Waters

Content producers from around the globe, mostly only the major ones, are getting increasingly fierce in their attempts to shut down websites containing pirated content. Whereas SOPA and PIPA haven’t worked, FBI and governments in Europe are actively cracking down on piracy websites. The Pirate Bay, one of the largest torrents hub online, is at the nexus of this storm. So now, TPB is planning to launch flying servers atop drones over international waters so that governments couldn’t shut down its servers.

Hackers Think Of Taking Internet Into The Space

Hackers Think Of Taking Internet Into The Space

SOPA has been making a lot of noise and headlines. While we have to wait the verdict from a Congress who’s members define internet as ‘tubes’ and ‘internets’, the online community continues it’s severe criticism of the bill. The bill aims for internet censorship which, most argue, will eliminate the freedom of speech that online realm provides. The hackers have decided to present their own solution: let’s launch satellites and use internet through them so that no one could control internet. Seems like an interesting idea.

GoDaddy Continues It’s Official Support For SOPA

GoDaddy Continues It’s Official Support For SOPA

It seems like the web hosting giant, GoDaddy, hasn’t taken a hint from the outcry that had ensued when it announced that it was supporting SOPA. Even when it immediately started damage control when people starting quitting the use of it’s services and released statements that it no longer supports SOPA, the fact is that so far, no official step has been taken by GoDaddy to formally quit support for SOPA.
