Keep the Internet free


The US State Department set up a task force on Tuesday to fight Internet censorship by foreign governments, NHK reports.

The team starts amid calls for help from US Internet firms that are being criticized for having collaborated with the Chinese government in censoring Internet content when doing business in China. The firms say they cannot resist Chinese censorship on their own. The firms include the search engines Yahoo and Google, which deleted political content in compliance with Chinese government censorship guidelines.

Good news, in my opinion, that should benefit a lot of young Chinese Internet users, such as those at an Interet Cafe in the NHK photo!
