Youtube
近日香港一首二次創作歌曲《大愛香港》被YouTube删除,引起大批網民不滿,並重新認識YouTube那套「內容識別」技術機制。
YouTube has taken an important step to protect its users against frivolous takedowns, instituting a formal process for appealing blocked videos under the ContentID program. But takedown policies are still favorable to large copyright holders.
Hauwei|華為
內地電訊設備巨頭華為近日積極推動海外上市計劃,接觸投行諮詢上市事宜。但美國國會日前高調對華為進行調查,並稱調查目的是判定華為是否會給美國國家安全帶來威脅。

Philippines|菲律賓
菲律賓政府無視國內人民反對,執意通過「防止數碼罪行法案」。公民團體和傳媒工作者都在街頭和社交網站抗議,擔心政治家將利用它打壓批評的聲音。
The Philippines has approved measures to prosecute users that post “defamatory” comments on social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook. They will be liable for a fine of 1 million pesos (US$24,000) or face up to 12 years in prison.
Iran|伊朗
YouTube上載的反伊斯蘭影片(Innocence of Muslims) 引發多國反美示威。近日伊朗更以此為借口,指「公眾要求」國家攔截Google搜尋,因為它拒絕刪除旗下的YouTube影片。然而,民間更傾向相信此舉只是政府打擊國內博客的另一股浪潮。
Iran plans to switch its citizens onto a domestic Internet network in what officials say is a bid to improve cyber security but which many Iranians fear is the latest way to control their access to the web.
