OpenNet Initiative: The Year in Review

OpenNet Initiative: The Year in Review

2010 was an eventful year with respect to filtering and surveillance. “Among the year’s most well-known events are the banning of Blackberry services across Saudi Arabia, India, Bahrain, and other countries in the region as governments demanded increased access to data on RIM devices; the blocking of Facebook in multiple countries in response to ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’; tensions between Google and China; and the filtering of Wikileaks in parts of the Middle East in response to the organization’s release of United States diplomatic cables.
