Étiquette : ends of the Internet (Page 2 of 3)

«We’re speaking out because restricting access to lawful and valuable information is contrary to our mission as a company and keeps us from delivering the comprehensive search service that people expect of us. But the threat is much greater than this. These cases represent a serious assault on the public’s right to access lawful information. We will argue in court for a reasonable interpretation of the right to be forgotten and for the ability of countries around the world to set their own laws, not have those of others imposed on them».

À la source de ces actions se trouve un groupe Facebook intitulé Citizens Against Single Gateway. Ce dernière a une inquiétude plus grave que le seul CCA : un projet de point d’entrée unique en Thaïlande pour l’Internet étranger, sorte de checkpoint bien sûr contrôlé par la junte. L’idée avait été enterrée octobre en 2015 suite au tollé général, mais a été remise au goût du jour mercredi dernier par le ministre de la Défense, Prawit Wongsuwon. Celui-ci a déclaré que ce portail était nécessaire « pour notre défense » contre des « attaques d’information » venues d’autres pays, notamment le Laos, culturellement et linguistiquement proche, où sont réfugiés un certain nombre de suspects de lèse-majesté.
