According to Granick internet is dying. It is not a place of freedom it once used to be. It doesn’t even resemble the place where innovation and information reined.
The internet isn’t the level playing field anymore. Even though once everyone thought so. Granik continued the openness and freedom of the internet is disappearing.
The internet is being replaced with a centralized regulated entity. As a result the internet could end up like the TV. The internet will soon turn into a controlled and closed thing.
The speech by Granick was the opening key note speech. The conference in Las Vegas had an attendance of more than 10000 security researchers, reported TechCrunch.
Granick has been an activist against computer crimes for a long time. Granick was also involved in defending hackers against unfair government prosecutions.
Granick showed concern of what the fate of internet will be if the current way was not stopped. Especially the ban on security researchers from studying software. The software’s which are sold by commercial companies.
According to Granick the message is very clear. If anyone steps over the line the authorities will come for them. Software’s today decide where a person’s possessions are.
