Internet Censorship in Brazil – use VPN to Unblock Restrictions
Since the last 2-3 years there has been an increase in the countries restricting internet and censorship. This in turn causes lack of freedom of expression, in general, in the coutries that do not only internet freedom and people have access to only information that is filtered.
However, amidst countries restricting the information on the internet for people of their countries, there is good news for the Brazilians! Brazilian government has left it to their citizens to make decisions regarding the information on the internet. The government has not censored information for its people. This has inspired the governments of other countries and they are also opting for the freedom of the internet.
Moreover, there hasn’t been any news that has come forward about the Brazilian government monitoring people’s emails, facebook posts or the chat rooms on the internet. There have been cases where private individuals and companies have taken action towards the Internet service providers and search engines for the information posted via ther platform. Legal action mostly results in the content being removed from the internet. The laws of Brazil do restrict information and chats that are somewhat racist (for example, websites about neo-Nazi movement).
