Internet freedom?

According to an online report: "China is the worst violator of Internet freedom, says a report by Reporters Sans Frontieres, which also finds that Internet journalists in South Asia are vulnerable to frequent attacks because they lack the legal protection traditional media enjoys.

The report, 'Internet Under Surveillance 2004,' examines the situation in 60 countries and zeroes in on China as the worst violator of online freedom.

It says four countries throw people in jail for posting 'subversive' topics online - China (with a whopping 63 cyber-dissidents in prison), Vietnam (7), the Maldives (3) and Syria (2). "
