Google've released a white paper (embedded below) cthat explores the ways that governments impose limits on the free flow of information online. It's pretty wonky stuff, but the premise is simple: In addition to infringing human rights, governments that block the free flow of information on the Internet are also blocking trade and economic growth.

"In the paper, we urge policymakers in the US, EU and elsewhere to take steps to break down barriers to free trade and Internet commerce. These issues present challenges, but also an opportunity for governments to align 21st century trade policy with the 21st century economy," stated Google.
