Internet censorship – February 2011

While there is no universally agreed upon definition of what constitutes « pervasive censorship », RSF (Reporters sans frontières) maintains an internet enemy list, while the OpenNet Initiative categorizes some nations as practicing extreme levels of Internet censorship. Such nations often censor political content and may retaliate against citizens who violate the censorship with imprisonment or other sanctions.
N.B: The level of censorship in Tunisia has changed since Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s government was overturned on 14 January 2011.
