Background information 背景資料

Digital Divide
Generally, Digital Divide refers to the gap between those who benefit from digital technology and those who do not. It includes the imbalance both in physical access to technology and the resources and skills needed to effectively participate as a digital citizen. The digital divide exists between those in cities and those in rural areas. It also exists between the educated and the uneducated, between economic classes, and, globally, between the more and less industrially developed nations.

Censorship
Internet censorship whose legal issues are similar to offline censorship is the control or suppression of the publishing or accessing of information on the Internet in the field of morality, military, politics and religion etc. Due to the underlying distributed technology of the Internet, it is very difficult to have total censorship on the Internet barring North Korea and Cube’s total control on Internet-connected computers. Internet censorship in Hong Kong refers to the law that criminalizes the distribution of certain materials, particularly child pornography, obscene images and pirated materials while protecting freedom of expression.

Privacy concern
Generally speaking, internet provides the access through all parts of the world, which benefits us from receiving different information. Meanwhile, the internet could poses privacy threat, especially the potential theft of identity via phishing sites, as well as leakage of personal information via various sites. Indeed, the advent of Wi-Fi could aggravate the problem to certain extent, like the “Google street” incident.

Case 1 Social sites concern

Allegation of releasing personal information on social network sites, by both voluntary and involuntary means.

Facebook is the most popular social network site, which over a hundred million users use it daily. Moreover, facebook was also the arena for the internet marketing, which create much business opportunity. The facebook company had also exploited much of the opportuntity, and provide the user information to those third party clients to raise the advertising income.
This caused controversy against the facebook of privacy concern, and many uses would inevitably release their information to the third party, which they worry about. The recent privacy policy of facebook also cause substantial concern among users.

Case 2 fraud, fishing and spam

This is by no means new for such way of infringing the privacy of internet users, and the trend is still increasing, especially in the new economies. Frequent news could be found, and relevant concern could be easily discovered.

Case 3 Wi-Fi issue

The advent of wireless internet is a blessing to our life, however, the Wireless technology is very vulnerable to attacks, and especially in those public wireless access spots which without sufficient security protection. Google was alleged to interfere the privacy of unsecure Wi-Fi when it collected information of Wi-Fi hotspots through the streets. In fact, many concerns towards Wi-Fi had already been active in discussion.
