A law introducing new controls on the internet has come into force in Russia amid concerns it may be used by the government to silence its critics. In theory, the "sovereign internet" law gives officials wide-ranging powers to restrict traffic on the Russian web. The Kremlin has said the law will improve cyber security. A spokesman said users would not notice any change. Experts say it is unclear how the powers of the controversial law might be used, or how effectively they can be implemented given the technology challenges and high costs. It gives the Kremlin the possibility to switch off connections within Russia or completely to the worldwide web "in an emergency". It is up to the government to decide what constitutes a threat and what actions should be taken.
Many conservatives argue that Facebook and Google are monopolies seeking to restrict conservative speech. Many on both sides believe that government should actively regulate the moderation of social media platforms to attain fairness, balance, or other values. Yet American law and culture strongly circumscribe government power to regulate speech on the internet and elsewhere. Congress has offered additional protections to tech companies by freeing them from most intermediary liability for speech that appears on their platforms. The U. Supreme Court has decided that private companies in general are not bound by the First Amendment. However, some activists support new efforts by the government to regulate social media.

Before I joined Stanford Social Innovation Review in , I spent almost 20 years in Silicon Valley reporting and writing about the technology industry for a variety of business publications, including Fortune and Forbes magazines. One of the most exciting developments I covered was the emergence of the Internet and the World Wide Web. There was no central authority controlling access to the Web, or regulating who could create a website or what they could publish. Software standards for the Web were open, license-free, and controlled by an international community—a far cry from the top-down profit-seeking approach to technology then pursued by the likes of IBM, Microsoft, and Apple. The possibilities for the Web were endless: open government, open data, open access, free education, and free information.
Internet censorship is the control or suppression of what can be accessed, published, or viewed on the Internet enacted by regulators, or on their own initiative. Individuals and organizations may engage in self-censorship for moral, religious, or business reasons, to conform to societal norms, due to intimidation, or out of fear of legal or other consequences. The extent of Internet censorship varies on a country-to-country basis. While some democratic countries have moderate Internet censorship, other countries go as far as to limit the access of information such as news and suppress discussion among citizens. An example is the increased censorship due to the events of the Arab Spring.
