Towards an Internet Free of Censorship II Perspectives in Latin America

The development of the internet brings about new opportunities, challenges and problems that require creative solutions, capable of promoting further development, investment, sustainable growth, while fairly and squarely guaranteeing the rights of users. This new compilation of articles addresses some of the most salient issues within the Latin American legislative and regulatory agenda towards the internet. These are complex and thorny issues that have generated intense debate among scholars, legislators, practitioners, engineers, companies and users. The first article, authored by Carolina Aguerre, analyzes internet governance and the different local models developed in Latin America to assess their efficiency and impact. The second article, by Daniel Alvarez Valenzuela, offers an introduction to cyber security, highlighting the need to incorporate a human rights perspective towards its development. The third and fourth articles address zero-rating. Luca Belli explains the deep connection between access to the internet and zero rating policies, and Arturo Carrillo proposes an analysis of zero rating under the Inter-American system’s three part test: legality, necessity and proportionality. Last but not least, the fifth and sixth articles offer two different approaches to the “right to be forgotten”. Daphne Keller analyzes the European Directive and its (in) application to the Latin American context and Nelson Remolina reviews and criticizes the jurisprudence on the issue from the data protection perspective.
