J’ai envie de dire pourquoi pas? Mais, parce qu’il doit y avoir un MAIS, ce ne doit pas être un prétexte à quêter des subventions pour que la maison au fond d’un rang puisse avoir la haute vitesse!
Quelques paradoxes de l’enquête:
The survey also revealed divisions on the question of government oversight of some aspects of the net.
Web users questioned in South Korea and Nigeria felt strongly that governments should never be involved in regulation of the internet. However, a majority of those in China and the many European countries disagreed.
In the UK, for example, 55% believed that there was a case for some government regulation of the internet.
This rule would give regulators new powers to disconnect or slow down the net connections of persistent illegal file-sharers. Other countries, such as France, are also considering similar laws.
Recently, the EU adopted an internet freedom provision, stating that any measures taken by member states that may affect citizen’s access to or use of the internet « must respect the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens ».
In particular, it states that EU citizens are entitled to a « fair and impartial procedure » before any measures can be taken to limit their net access.
Most of those questioned also said that they believed the web had a positive impact, with nearly four in five saying it had brought them greater freedom.
However, many web users also expressed concerns. The dangers of fraud, the ease of access to violent and explicit content and worries over privacy were the most concerning aspects for those questioned.
A majority of users in Japan, South Korea and Germany felt that they could not express their opinions safely online, although in Nigeria, India and Ghana there was much more confidence about speaking out.
Ça me dépasse que des gens de pays démocratiques croient que l’État devrait censurer l’internet. On dirait que certains aiment ça avoir des chaînes…
