Description: "Internet content and applications providers face a large and growing number of challenges from governmental filtering and censorship in countries around the globe. Companies such as Google and Facebook have developed a range of responses to practices adopted by governments in China, Turkey, Australia, and elsewhere. The filtering practices themselves, and content providers’ responses to them, have domestic ramifications and relevance for policy debates in the U.S. about privacy, freedom of expression, and access to online content. In the first event of its 2010 forum series, MAP will lead a dialogue between experts on filtering and representatives from affected providers to discuss the consequences of control over access and speech in the domestic and international contexts."
