Tomorrow (12th March) Reporters Without Borders will be celebrating World Day Against Cyber Censorship. While the UK is not on Reporters Without Borders' list of "Enemies of the Internet," we should not be complacent.

Internet censorship affects over 95% of UK Internet users with most of us unaware of it. Nearly all of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) filter all their web traffic using the Internet Watch Foundation's (IWF) blacklist without notification or consent. The IWF is a non-government, non-regulated body whose remit is to block access to sites allegedly containing child abuse images or racist material. Whilst this is a noble goal, it is far from a perfect system.
