Aquí un blurb:

“Governments, corporations, and increasingly individuals have identified Online Service Providers (OSPs) as a convenient single point of content control, because courts are perceived to be too slow and ill equipped to deal with illegal content and activities on the internet. As such, in many jurisdictions governments have delegated the regulation of content to OSPs. This regulatory framework forces OSPs in most countries to play judge, jury, and executioner in determining the legality of online content, while simultaneously minimizing their liability in its propagation. This has a chilling effect on free speech online, as it is in the best interest of OSPs to block, filter, delete, or otherwise remove potentially lawful content in order to avoid costly legal disputes and/or the wrath of their regulators.”
