In some cases, this is a function of the blocking technique being used. Some countries, such as Tunisia and Uzbekistan, appear to deliberately disguise the fact that they are filtering Internet content, going a step farther to conceal filtering activity beyond the failure to inform users that they are being filtered.

Many times, those private parties are corporations chartered locally or individual citizens who live in that jurisdiction.

The dynamic of control online has changed greatly over the past ten years, and it is almost certain to change just as dramatically in the ten years to come.
