Internet censorship on the increase

I am seeing and hearing more and more incidents where the "independency" of the Internet is being threatened by the glocal companies as well as the governments.

We all know Google cooperation with the Chinese government to censor some content. We know that Yahoo hass just recently censored some comments about FlickR.

It is not just our daily lives being turned into a Big Brother state but the Internet is getting its own fair share of this treatment as well.

I know that we need to closely monitor any sites that are exploiting young children, etc but the question is how do you strike the right balance?
