From Fast Facts / College & Research Libraries News / April 2015

“Internet freedom around the world has declined for the fourth consecutive year, with a growing number of countries introducing online censorship and monitoring practices that are simultaneously more aggressive and more sophisticated in their targeting of individual users. Freedom on the Net 2014—the fifth annual comprehensive study of Internet freedom around the globe, covering developments in 65 countries that occurred between May 2013 and May 2014—finds Internet freedom around the world in decline for the fourth consecutive year, with 36 out of 65 countries assessed in the report experiencing a negative trajectory during the coverage period.”
