The Cases On Internet Freedom Of Speech

The freedom of speech is one vital issue among other social networking issues of the Internet. Among many topics regarding Internet Freedom of Speech, one conflicting and most dangerous is the Government Versus Citizens. Take the example of United States, the FBI has installed a system at many Internet Service Providers to spy on all incoming and outgoing emails.
The system was called Carnivore but later the name was changed to more innocent one DCS1000. The basic purpose of the systems was to keep a watchful eye on the internet users in order to find any illegal activities. This is clearly against the Fourth Amendment in the US constitution which forbids the government to spy on the citizens without any warrant.
