Doctorow warns against free speech threat

Cory Doctorow, leading voice against Internet censorship, has put up a blog post denouncing EG8, a Internet summit pushed by France which is attempting to restrict free speech on Net. Doctorow writes, "I was invited to the EG8 and declined. I believe it's a whitewash, an attempt to get people who care about the Internet to lend credibility to regimes that are in all-out war with the free, open net."
