When the World Wide Web was first proposed in 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee, his vision was to create a decentralized network of information that was free and open for everyone to access. Today, Berners-Lee and many others are fighting to preserve the new age of freedom of information expression the web enables. At the same time, many countries around the world are placing that freedom in jeopardy. In many countries, Internet freedom is becoming scarce. Across the globe, countries are restricting and censoring what websites are available to their citizens online. Countries around the world including Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, and Iran are blocking thousands of sites in an attempt to control what information their citizens are able to access.
