Internet censorship should be trade barrier: Google

Internet censorship should be treated as a barrier to trade, according to the chief executive of search and advertising giant Google.Speaking last week at a conference organised by US thinktank the Progress & Freedom Foundation, Eric Schmidt said that to defend freedom of speech, governments should use Internet censorship as a non-tariff trade barrier.”The Internet has created this remarkable set of free markets and open competitions,” said Schmidt. “We need to keep it free and open — if it goes the other way then we’ve got a serious problem.”
