Corporations are increasingly finding themselves caught in the
crosshairs as they are asked by local authorities to carry out
censorship and surveillance online. This chapter describes this
growing, thorny problem and some possible means to resolve it. The most
promising approach is neither local law nor a new international
covenant, but rather a strong, enforceable code of conduct created by
the corporations themselves, in concert with nongovernmental
organizations (NGOs), academics, states, and other stakeholders.
