Censored internet on the map

The battle for censorship-free internet is the last battle of government war against citizens - a battle that we all lose, users. Each country treats "threats" from uncensored internet differently and in other ways limits access to global resources. For example, Russia reduces the insight into the media representing the economic and political world differently than the mainstream mainstream, while Finland only blocks torrents. China, Taiwan and Vietnam restrict access to the Internet for political reasons, while countries such as Syria, Saudi Arabia and Yemen are guided by religious motives.

Censorship in Poland

Poland officially does not block torrents, although the online map prepared by VPNMentor.com - a website fighting for freedom on the Web - presents something else. This information is not entirely true - some internet providers may block torrent sites, but freedom is not yet limited by the law. Will it ever be? Let's hope not, because it's about copyright infringement, which is illegal and prosecuted. To the information presented on the map, let's add that we have our own register of prohibited sites . From July 1 this year. Internet providers - up to 250,000 fines - they are obliged to block access to unregistered domains associated with gambling activities within 48 hours. Obligators of payment also have to block. These locks can be bypassed extremely easily. The politicians who were behind this bill certainly did not consult technical issues with specialists.

How does censorship look in other countries? This is best reflected in the following map ( direct link to the map ).
