Understanding Eritrea’s Exceptionally Limited Internet Access | ICT Works | SuiGenerisNet | Scoop.it

Assaults against journalists rise in Turkey - Index on Censorship | Index on Censorship

Assaults against journalists rise in Turkey - Index on Censorship | Index on Censorship | SuiGenerisNet | Scoop.it

Since the beginning of this year, cases of assault against journalists, legal threats and lay offs worsened Turkey’s already precarious state of press freedom.

In May, Freedom House ranked Turkey’s media climate “not free.” The Istanbul-based non-profit news website Bianet publishes quarterly media monitoring reports on press freedom breaches within Turkey. Along with new fines against media outlets and other ominous restrictions, the most recent report shows that physical assault against journalists increased over the last three months. According to the new report, 54 journalists were victims of assault between April and June. Bianet’s previous report documents “at least” 40 accounts between January and March.

Introducing EFF's Stupid Patent of the Month

Introducing EFF's Stupid Patent of the Month | SuiGenerisNet | Scoop.it

Here at EFF, we see a lot of stupid patents. There was the patent on “scan to email.” And the patent on “bilateral and multilateral decision making.” There are so many stupid patents that Mark Cuban endowed a chair at EFF dedicated to eliminating them. We wish we could catalog them all, but with tens of thousands of low-quality software patentsissuing every year, we don’t have the time or resources to undertake that task.
