In as far as privacy is important to people, it will not be protected if government regulations would be allowed.
It will act as if looking over our shoulders, hindering private activities.
In this paper we shall discuss the usage of internet and censorship.
The usage of internet in Singapore is increasing rapidly.
Usage of internet around the world is increasing rapidly every month and this separates the users in two categories, those who use internet as the information superhighway and others who think of the internet as the information superhighway with barriers on some of the diversions as the censorship.
With the help of censorship, indecent, heretical and seditious information is filtered or blocked for access.
Several arguments have been raised concerning internet censorship.
A portion of the population is in agreement with the government’s proposal for internet censorship since it underage’s open access of undesirable sites significantly to minors (Marty).
It leaves out the option of self-control as the best regulation method.
The Web filters or Censor ware should thus be done away with as they bring with them more disadvantages than advantages.
