As a student and young adult, who may or may not use the Internet for less-than-legal reasons, I am concerned by the storm of controversy surrounding the subject of Internet piracy.

The development of independent artificial intelligences has always been a debated topic. With the growing importance of computers in our society, it becomes a major concern for all of us. As a computer science student, the wonders behind those intelligences and the improvement they could bring has always been an interesting subject to me. However, looking at movies, novels, etc., artificial reasoning seems to be a subject of fear and is often depicted as machines turning hostile toward the human race.

Considering the amount of time I, and others of my generation, spend on it, any news concerning the future of the Internet holds great interest for me.

However, in recent years, there have been political campaigns in the US and in Britain to allow governments and/or private companies to censor content on the Internet.
