States keep control of the Internet

The Chinese government has referred to its "Internet sovereignty" in a report published in June of this year. The daily Eesti Päevaleht notes that China is far from being the only country that practices Internet censorship, naming Russia as a further example: "Those who believe that sovereignty in the form of a centralised power is obsolete in the age of the Internet are exaggerating somewhat. Even under these new circumstances states have been very successful in consolidating their power. The upshot is that borders may be drawn also in the Internet by legal and technological means. For that reason China's 'declaration of sovereignty' in June deserves to be taken seriously - if only to elucidate the plans of those states that don't talk so openly about their cyber-strategies."
