BBC News - Google warns Blogger users over porn - Google bans 'explicit' adult content from Blogger blogs Summary:In an abrupt reversal of policy, Google will soon disappear blogs on its Blogger platform that don't conform to its new anti-adult policies. [...] "Google: Removing content it doesn't like" [...] [...] [opt] to move to self-hosting, which is a safer option than trusting art, writing or creative speech to any conservative company. [...] [Search as public utility, unencumbered by politics nor religion and other things.] // question, snapchat already blocked porners from receiving money via its internal payment product for snaps/paid snaps. question, will it ban nudity when it went public and the company turns into a grown up with grown-up supervision? &! &!

The French government can now force ISPs to block websites without a court order | PandoDaily
Efforts to grant the French government the ability to control which websites are allowed inside the country accelerated after the shooting at Charlie Hebdo’s office on January 7. The government has also threatened to consider companies like Facebook and Google “accomplices” to hate-speech if they don’t remove extremist content from their properties. That’s the unfortunate irony of the Charlie Hebdo attack: an effort to silence a magazine which has since become an idol for free speech has led France and the United Kingdom to propose or introduce laws that limit speech through direct censorship and intimidation. [...] Internet content, France once again circumvents the judicial power, betraying the separation of powers in limiting what is the first freedom of all in a democracy — freedom of speech. // invites also abuse of the system. say one hacks ones business website, uploads illegal stuff, reports website, gets blocked 24hrs later, business has no website/business for 3 months.

Chinesischer Dissident geht mit Zuckerberg ins Gericht - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Mark Zuckerberg hatte Xis Buch auf seinem Schreibtisch liegen, als bei ihm kürzlich Chinas Chefzensor zu Besuch kam. Demonstrativ, könnte man vielleicht sagen. Die staatliche Nachrichtenwebsite "The Paper" berichtete später, Zuckerberg habe erklärt: "Ich habe dieses Buch auch meinen Kollegen gekauft." Er wolle, dass diese "den Sozialismus chinesischer Art verstehen". Sowohl Schmidt als auch Zuckerberg haben für ihr Bekenntnis zu dem Buch, das Reden und Aufsätze des chinesischen Staatschefs versammelt, einige Kritik einstecken müssen. Bei Zuckerberg kam die nicht zuletzt von chinesischen Dissidenten und Regimekritikern. // // Amnesty International hatte erst im November erklärt, Chinas Internetmodell sei "eines von extremer Kontrolle und Unterdrückung".

Chief constable warns against ‘drift towards police state’ | UK news | The Guardian
The battle against extremism could lead to a “drift towards a police state” in which officers are turned into “thought police”, one of Britain’s most senior chief constables has warned. [...] It is politicians, academics and others in civil society who have to define what counts as extremist ideas, he says. [...] He stressed he supported new counter-terrorism measures unveiled by the government last week, including bans on alleged extremist speakers from colleges. Fahy said government, academics and civil society needed to decide where the line fell between free speech and extremism. Otherwise, he warned, it would be decided by the security establishment, so-called “securocrats”, including the security services, government and senior police chiefs like Fahy. &! see Twitter & FB & GitHub now (have to comply with regional/country specific censorship et al - ie Germany got laws against the display and public use of Nazi symbols -

GitHub blocked in Russia | Hacker News
May be for western people it's hard to believe how can it be possible to support this crazy regime. I can tell you that even top managers from leading russian internet company (from my private conversation with them) dreamed about great russian firewall because in that case, they won't have competitors like Google. Furthermore even IT guys like Putin regime and don't get worry about crazy laws passed against the internet. I assure you in that because many of my colleagues really like Stalin and really like what's happening in Ukraine. Almost all people in Russia really hate western world. They don't care about currency exchange rates and inflation, they care only about imperialism. When Putin made desision about Crimea, and when people totally supported it, I stopped believe in Russia at all. Russia is a pure soviet country, with pure 100% soviet mindset, vast majority of russian people like idea of self-isolation. This is why Russia has no future as a liberal market-driven country.

Snapchat and Spiegel’s Interesting Call on the Hong Kong Demonstrations | TechCrunch
@EvanSpiegel on why @Snapchat chose not to make an 'Our Story' for the Hong Kong protests: 'One of my pet peeves over time is how the technology industry has tried to sell counterculture. It’s tried to sell the revolution. We’ve been really resistant to doing this' || WRONG. Hypocrisy. Selling a pro-democracy movement as counterculture is wrong. it's deceitful. Snapchat and it's investors only hold open the door for China. As long as they don't upset the Chinese regime, they can operate in the future in China. Apps that went "against the China's regiem politics" were shut out of this country, +1bn potential users. It wouldn't be in line with the fiduciary responsibility (to its investors) that Evan Spiegel/Snapchat has to operate along.

On Google's Right to Know vs. Europe's Right to Be Forgotten | New Republic
Since Google is in the information business, any efforts to regulate it are inevitably represented as censorship—as Eric Schmidt's remark on the right to know reveals. But of course, the information in question is not eliminated in its entirely. One can still find it, albeit at a higher cost—it is just made less visible. The motto of "The Circle," the company at the center of Dave Eggers' eponymous dystopian novel about a high-tech giant with an eerie resemblance to Google, is “Secrets are lies. Caring is sharing. Privacy is theft.” Well, to those three we can now add the fourth: Regulation is censorship.

Facebook and hate speech: The company should not be in the business of censorship.
"But the idea that Facebook should be arbitrating this type of speech at all is questionable. It of course must be noted that the company -- like any company -- is well within its rights to regulate speech as it sees fit. The question is not can Facebook censor speech, rather, but should it?"

"Schwarzbuch WWF": Einigung zwischen WWF und Huismann steht bevor - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Frage ist delikat, die Antwort nicht einfach: Wie viel Industrienähe verträgt der Umweltschutz? Das "Schwarzbuch WWF" des Filmemachers Wilfried Huismann geht hart mit dem World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) ins Gericht: Durch Kuschelei mit den Konzernen verrate die Organisation ihre eigenen Ziele. Schon die Unterzeile des im Gütersloher Verlagshaus (Verlagsgruppe Random House) erschienenen Buches beklagt "Dunkle Geschäfte im Namen des Panda".

"The Global Plutocracy Is Terrified of Dissent" | ZeroHedge
Our Voices Are More Important Than We've Realized
Renner is right: the plutocracy is terrified of dissent.
Indeed, the Asch Conformity Experiment showed that even one dissenting voice can give people permission to think for themselves.
And a new study shows that when only 10% of a population have strongly-held beliefs, their belief will be adopted by the majority of the society.

WikiLeaks - Careful When Shooting the Messenger -
Still, there is one important parallel: A U.S. prosecution of Mr. Assange would carry significant downside risks for the United States. The issues at stake were described neatly in a recent policy paper by Google, about government efforts to disrupt the free flow of information on the Internet.
The paper does not mention WikiLeaks; it was widely seen as a broadside against China’s policy of filtering the Internet, after Google’s run-ins with the censors in Beijing. But it contained a useful summary of the different kinds of censorship practiced around the world, including this tactic: “Encouragement of self-censorship through means including surveillance and monitoring, threats of legal action and informal methods of intimidation.”

Streisand effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Streisand effect is an Internet phenomenon where an attempt to censor or remove a piece of information backfires, causing the information to be publicized widely and to a greater extent than would have occurred if no censorship had been attempted. Examples of such attempts include censoring a photograph, a number, a file, or a website (for example via a cease-and-desist letter). Instead of being suppressed, the information receives extensive publicity, often being widely mirrored across the Internet, or distributed on file-sharing networks.[1][2]
