Categories: Latin America, Brazil, Digital Activism, Freedom of Speech, Governance, Law, Technology

Sérgio Amadeu [1] [pt] argues that the cybercrime bill [2] proposed for Brazil will put DHCP protocol networks at risk because it enables free and anonymous surfing, the same for wireless networks which allow free public access. “(Senator) Azeredo will create a new cost for Brazil: the cost of digital communication”. Meanwhile this online petition [3] against the bill has gathered over 100,000 signatures so far.
