> Freedom on the Net 2011: Growing Threats to the Internet & Digital Media
> As the recent uprisings across the Middle East have shown, information technology facilitates political change, but for that very reason, authoritarian regimes are intensifying their controls over the internet.  Freedom House is now issuing its report in levels of freedom on the internet around the world, which rates internet access, censorship, and user rights in 37 countries and assesses key trends in freedom of digital media.  The presentation of report findings will be followed by a panel discussion with internet freedom experts.  Brought to you by the Yahoo! Series on Business and Human Rights.
