Arts+Labs Statement on Freedom of Expression Online
Thursday November 8, 2012 3:20 PM
Arts+Labs has long believed that it is critical that Internet users both respect other users’ rights and are able to express themselves online without fear of government censorship or persecution for unpopular views. The Internet can be a powerful tool for spreading freedom and for empowering individuals to take control of their own lives. Thus, we are greatly disturbed by reports that two Vietnamese songwriters have been sentenced to prison for posting songs online that criticize their government.
