Dear LibTech,

Today, 12 March, World Day Against Cyber-Censorship, Reporters Without
Borders is releasing a Special report on Internet surveillance,
available at

For this year’s “Enemies of the Internet” report, Reporters Without
Borders has identified Five State Enemies of the Internet, five “spy”
states that conduct systematic online surveillance that results in
serious human rights violations. They are Syria, China, Iran, Bahrain
and Vietnam.

Without advanced technology, authoritarian regimes would not be able to
spy on their citizens. Reporters Without Borders has compiled a list of
five “Corporate Enemies of the Internet,” five private sector companies
that it regards as “digital era mercenaries” because they sell products
that are used by authoritarian governments to commit violations of human
rights and freedom of information. They are Gamma, Trovicor, Hacking
Team, Amesys and Blue Coat.

Any comment or feedback on this report is very welcome >>
