互联网可以被认为是一个非常重要的平台，为人们提供了一个新的表达机会。信息的自由流动使人们能够访问与学术和娱乐相关的各种信息。一方面，互联网提供了言论自由;另一方面，它也挑战了言论自由的权利。信息的自由流动也提高了内容监管的挑战和问题。研究表明,互联网是“空间承诺的一种社会真正的空间不可能允许——自由没有混乱,没有政府的控制,共识没有力量”(Jørgensen 10)。互联网的经济实力和潜力是非常高的，因为它为企业和消费者提供了新的机会。它在许多企业的全球化、创新和发展过程中起到了重要的作用。互联网也催生了一些最具创新力的公司，如谷歌、苹果、e – bay和亚马逊。互联网在经济中的作用不可否认。然而，信息的自由获取和自由流动已经使许多国家限制了其公民访问的各种互联网站点。在许多国家，互联网并不是免费的，因为它被认为是由于色情、非法内容、不雅的妇女和儿童成像以及其他许多原因造成的。
Internet can be considered as a very significant platform that provides the people a new opportunity of expression. The free flow of information has allowed accessing a wide variety of information related to academics as well as entertainment. One the one hand, Internet has provided the freedom of expression; on the other hand, it has also challenged the right to freedom of expression. The free flow of information has also raised the challenge and problem of content regulation. A study suggests that Internet is “the space promised a kind of society that real space could never allow – freedom without anarchy, control without government, consensus without power” (Jørgensen 10). The economic power and potential of Internet is very high, as it provides new opportunities to the businesses and also to consumers. It has significantly helped in the process of globalization, innovation and growth of many businesses. Internet has also given birth to some of the most innovative companies, such as Google, Apple, E-bay and Amazon. The role of Internet in economy can’t be denied. However, the free access and free flow of information has caused many countries to restrict various Internet sites to be accessed by their citizens. In many countries, Internet is not free, as it is believed, due to pornography, illegal content, indecent imaging of women and children and many other reasons.
