Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The Internet has in recent years undergone a notable and substantial development, and line with this development computer crime has spread amongst Danish Internet users. Authorities have, for a long time, tried to prevent illegal actions and illicit material on the Internet, but finding an acceptable solution to this problem has, as yet, not been a success. IT- og Telestyrelsen presented in 2005 three filtration solutions as possible initiatives to combat illegal material on the internet, as well as to protect web-surfer’s information and freedom of expression. In addition to this problem, a new international trade agreement called ACTA presented in January 2012 as another solution to resolve these issues related to Internet crime. Positions for and against these proposals are numerous, and questions of how great an impact, this agreement will have web-surfer’s freedom of expression. Seen in the light of theory and empirical interviews with professionals, this project will attempt to explain and analyze information distribution and freedom of expression together with filtering and the proposed solutions and, finally, the technical systems available. Following completion of the formal Project findings a discussion will be raised centred around positions for and against IT- og Telestyrelsens filtration solutions and the ACTA agreement. Lastly we will compare the findings of this Project with the censorship in countries like China and North Korea, which is already gone to extremes with the use of censorship. Is it possible to develop a system that will fight crime and yet maintain Internet user information and freedom of expression? Or is this just utopia?
