Recent years, and especially this past year, have seen a notable upswing in developments toward anti online privacy around the world, primarily in the form of draconian surveillance and censorship laws both legislated and suggested and ISPs being pressured into individually acting as both police and informants for various commercial interests. Once such first steps have been taken, it is of course also of huge concern how these newly created possibilities could be used outside of their originally stated bounds, and what the future of such developments may hold in store for online privacy. There are no signs of this trend being broken anytime soon.
