Pew Research Publishes "Net Threats" Report

The Pew Research Internet Project has released a "Canvassing of Experts" that finds growing concerns about the future of the Internet. According to the report, current trends could "sharply disrupt the way the Internet works for many users." Among the threats identified: state censorship, surveillance, diminished user trust, commercialization and centralization. EPIC President Marc Rotenberg pointed to the growing concentration of the Internet industry and said "There should be many information sources, more distributed, and with less concentration of control....We need many more small and mid-size firms that are stable and enduring."
