Perspectives on internet filtering
In light of recent EU moves towards internet filtering now might be a good time to point to a paper by Colin Scott and myself where we argue that filtering risks jeopardising values we associate with freedom of expression - in particular legitimacy, transparency and accountability. It's available on SSRN here. If you find that paper interesting you might also enjoy the collection of essays from which it was taken - Brownsword and Yeung (eds.), Regulating Technologies.
