Recently, politicians, businessmen and even "media" personalities have been talking more and more about various aspects of the Internet, and less and less words about it sound in a positive way. The times when the Internet was poorly distributed and was, rather, a haven for "freaks" and geeks are over. Along with the massiveness of the Web, numerous and in some places really serious problems began to appear. And it is not at all surprising that entire states are thinking about regulating the Network not only on their territory.
To date, it is Germany that has one of the richest experiences in controlling communication on the Web. For example, the country's parliament passed a law that obliges large resources to promptly delete any offensive records. Otherwise, such resources will be fined a tidy sum. Even such mastodons of the Internet business as Facebook and Youtube have repeatedly fallen under the "distribution". The FRG gives exactly 24 hours to clean the "dirty linen".
The Supreme Court of Canada is much more concerned with online scammers that offending someone's feelings. The country has passed a law according to which Internet resources that have been caught cheating their customers or business partners are denied access to search engines. Also, search engines should make every effort to combat fake business sites.
But in Italy, the Network is striving not so much to control as to endow it with new "powers". Not so long ago, the country was allowed to officially fire employees of companies and enterprises through the popular messenger WhatsApp. An amazing example of loyalty to the Internet! However, several laws on authorization on Internet sites and insults on the Internet were adopted here at once.
After a series of spy scandals around the CIA (not without the help of Edward Snowden), today it is difficult to surprise anyone with how “unobvious” the Internet is enslaved in the United States. Recently, local lawmakers decided that the crusade against the Web should bring blockchain technology to its knees. In fairness, it is worth replacing that, despite the hype, the blockchain has not been widely used over the years.
In the Netherlands, there is little concern about online tolerance, blockchain and layoffs. But much attention is paid to copyright infringement. A special Internet organization BREIN has appeared in the country, which has already achieved the closure of more than 200 large sellers who dared to distribute content illegally.
While in various countries they are trying to prevent intelligence services from using the Internet, in Australia, state security agents simply do not take anyone's opinion and are not ashamed of this fact. Local "spies" openly stated that they decrypt all user traffic that interests them. On the secrecy of correspondence and other "lofty matters" all "unexpectedly" did not care. They explained all this to citizens more than trivially - the fight against terrorist threats.
7. European Union
Not only individual countries, but also entire political formations are trying to lay their hands on the Internet. For example, the EU with enviable regularity penalizes market monopolists for being (what a surprise!) The dominant companies in the segment.
