Leslie Harris speaks on panel "Who Wants to Control the Internet, and How?" at the AAAS Forum on Science & Technology Policy
The session will focus on the areas of agreement and disagreement between those that see a need for greater control over some aspects of Internet use, and those who believe in the need for greater openness and access to the Internet's content. Some highlights:
- Justifications offered for greater control: fighting Internet piracy; improving cybersecurity; blocking of child pornography; preventing terrorism and money-laundering; censoring hate speech
- Is the “golden age” of the Internet over?
