Web 2.0 and justice

/ 30 September 2007

MediaShift’s blog notes several recent instances in which YouTube and flickr (as well as other sites) are coming under attack for the ways in which activists are sharing information and videos on them:

"The powers that be in Iran, Zimbabwe and Cuba, among others, have a hit list, and the names are familiar: YouTube, MySpace, Flickr, among others. Just as bloggers have run into trouble with free speech online, social networking communities are becoming the target of state censorship in many countries, with government security forces trying to block content which exposes abuses of their authority."
