The Internet Governance Forum started meeting this week in Athens. There was a discussion about major tech companies “assisted” China’s internet censorship. The 2 companies present defended their businesses. Others said it should be the company home country’s responsibility to govern ethical business practices overseas. All in all, I don’t think anyone wants to take on the responsibility for ensuring freedom of expression online.

This issue is not new. It’s been reported for quite a while and when there is a discussion about it, no one takes the blame. “The Great Firewall” are the new keywords for media reports on China’s internet censorship.
