Russia 'On Path' to Internet Censorship, Schmidt Warns

Google's executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, is worried that Russia's Internet filtering could turn the country into the next China, though Chinese censorship and rights restrictions can't last forever as the country and technology grow, he said. Russia last year passed legislation to blacklist Web sites, and the government has been accused of using the law to block information it deems unfit for the population, in addition to illegal content like child pornography.
