Berkman Book Release: Access Denied: The Practice and Policy of Global Internet Filtering
by Ronald Deibert (Editor), John G. Palfrey (Editor), Rafal Rohozinski (Editor), Jonathan Zittrain (Editor)
The OpenNet Initiative’s new book, Access Denied: The Practice and Policy of Global Internet Filtering, is now on bookshelves, and we invite you to celebrate with us.
Edited by the Principal Investigators of the OpenNet Initiative, Access Denied explores the landscape of censorship-oriented controls on Internet content, from the technology behind it to the policy that supports it and the social implications of it.
Access Denied documents the increasing fragmentation of the Net, to the detriment of all who value the free flow of information. “No one had a clear sense of the nature of Internet censorship until now. This extraordinary work maps the unfreedom of the Net. Unfortunately, that state is becoming the norm,” wrote Larry Lessig about the book.
Members of the ONI team will take up some of the issues addressed in the book at 6:30 PM on March 14 in Maxwell Dworkin G115, on the Harvard University Campus.
A reception will follow the talk, at the Berkman Center, 23 Everett St., 2nd Floor.
We also invite you to join us prior to the book talk at 5:30 PM in Maxwell Dworkin G115 for a lecture by Peter Fleischer, Google’s Global Privacy Counsel, hosted by Harvard Law School’s Journal on Law and Technology.
No RSVP required, but we do appreciate knowing if you plan to attend. You can email our project coordinator, Sally Walkerman, at email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you there!
