    US: The number of content removal requests we received increased by 103% compared to the previous reporting period.

    India: The number of content removal requests we received increased by 49% compared to the previous reporting period.

    This is from Google transparency report.

    The hypocrisy of US is laughable on Assange.... its like "Let riots happen in other countries on false propoganda while we suppress the TRUTH to Americans themselves and the world"

    Hypocrisy all around there. What is the record of Ecuador's president on free speech in his own country?

    I don't think US should lecture us about internet freedom. ACTA / SOPA , witch-hunting, snooping, propaganda bots, banning p2p etc.
    Indians shouldn't be proud of our internet freedom, our speeds are dismal and so is the net penetration.

    Any country that is not hypocritical is actually bad in safeguarding its national interests. You have to be a hypocrite when it comes to international relations and diplomacy. Indians should actually learn quite a bit on this topic from the US.

    Irrespective of what US says - internet freedom should be maintained, as it is the last bastion of free speech that can take on the corrupt and anti-nationals and organize - spread awareness against the corrupt con-gress led GOI and paid/minority owned media!

    "The Yanks" didn't tell you a damned thing, an Obama appointee did.

    And as for Obama being for full freedom of the internet...

    Can the government detain you over Facebook posts?

    [​IMG]

    WASHINGTON, August 22, 2012 — Brandon J. Raub, a 26-year-old pro-liberty activist, former U.S. Marine, and Virginia resident, was arrested after authorities deemed his Facebook posts threatening. Citing an obscure statute allowing the involuntary detainment of a citizen for psychiatric evaluation, the FBI, Secret Service, and local authorities swarmed Raub’s property to question and then seize him.

    Without a warrant or recitation of his Miranda rights, Raub was handcuffed and taken into custody. After a quick hearing, government officials confirmed that Raub’s Facebook posts necessitated his detention, refusing to acknowledge legal objections that the words were wrongly interpreted. The former Marine will undergo 30 days of evaluation at Salem VA Medical Center.

    Since the incident, Raub has become an online hero as the arrest video and Facebook pages teeter on the verge of going viral. Citizens from all political persuasions, veterans, civil liberties advocates and the generally curious are discussing the political manifesto and detainment of Brandon Raub.

    So what did he post? A Facebook note titled “The Truth” lists grievances against the American ruling establishment. Raub expresses his belief that the American principles of limited government and personal liberty are expiring and that corporations and international bankers run the state, not the people. Raub has directly called for the arrest of bankers and politicians who consistently defy their oath to the United States Constitution.
