20 April 2012 | Knight Center"Toward a Censorship-Free Internet ("Hacia una internet libre decensura" in Spanish) is an online book available via free download that analyzes legislation in Latin America addressing freedom of expression and Internet censorship. Eduardo Bertoni, director of the Center for Studies on Freedom of Expression and Access to Information at Palermo University, compiled the book, which addresses four key issues: the liability of Internet intermediaries, how to handle private data, content filtering, and jurisdiction applicable to freedom of expression. Bertoni said that Latin America still needs a lot of regulation, making it difficult to determine whether governments apply with equal rigor the same laws protecting freedom of speech and press in the traditional media as they do in digital media. In his opinion, all countries in the region could create multilateral or local regulations to protect content published online without Internet censorship, but thus far, no country has made progress in this type of legislation.
