In the Internet Era, China is in the throes of biggest crackdown on ‘Freedom of Expression and Media.’
The government of China has the tight grip over the media. China Regulators blocks websites like Facebook and Google and Chinese firms and individuals use VPN (Virtual Private Network) to view banned websites, the technology operates in a legal gray area. Foreign companies rely on VPN’s to get through universal apps such as Google Docs that its employees use in other countries.
