The objective of this final was to point out the continuous disabling of the free flow of information on the Internet. In order to protect the country and national interests, as well as the security of their citizens, governments all over the world frequently use technical tools, the aim of which is to censor or block the access to the information on the Internet, which in turn disables the individual from getting access to them. The problem lays in the fact that, in such cases, a thin line between the national security and the right of an individual to be informed can easily be crossed. The examples of that are totalitarian governments, where an individual is almost entirely disabled from reaching relevant information over the Internet. That is because the governments are using censorship techniques, such as IP blocking, content blocking, Distributed Denial of Service Attack, as well as URL and content filtering. Constant work of non-profit organizations, which are devoted to promote and assure the free flow of information as well as human rights, is just a small step in that direction, given that there are still no effective sanctions which could procure the citizens of such governments the free access to the information on the Internet.
