Chokepoints: Global Private Regulation of the Internet by @ntusikov @BrockFOSS #viznotes

Following the arc of her amazing (and terrifying) book Chokepoints, Dr. Tusikov takes us underground to find a small group of corporations, tacitly backed by the US and other governments, have implemented much of SOPA via a series of secret, handshake agreements. Drawing on extensive interviews, Dr. Tusikov details the emergence of a global regime in which large Internet firms act as regulators for powerful intellectual property owners, challenging fundamental notions of democratic accountability.
