Internet Censorship Wiki
Internet censorship is the control or suppression of what can be accessed, published, or viewed on the Internet enacted by regulators, or on their own initiative. Individuals and organizations may engage in self-censorship for moral, religious, or business reasons, to conform to societal norms, due to intimidation, or out of fear of legal or other consequences.
To conclude, internet censorship exists to :
- prevent individuals accessing copyrighted information.
- promote particular religions and political ideas.
- control Internet-related and Internet-communicated crime.
- stop people from viewing harmful or sensitive content.
- monitor the billions of people on the Internet with varying opinions and preferences.
Thus, internet censorship acts as a viable method by governments and official organizations to manage what their citizens can view.
