Abstract

Professor Nunziato's book explains why the growth of the Internet as the most open forum for free expression in history is now threatened by the privatization of the Internet, the gatekeeper control over expression exercised by a handful of corporate owners, and their power to censor what we say and read online. She sets forth how we got to this place and what must be done about it to guarantee meaningful free speech rights in the Internet age.

Keywords: Internet, cyberspace, censorship, free speech, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, free expression, First Amendment, filtering, Brand X, common carriage
