This chapter presents the problems digital technology companies will be facing in Asian countries regarding censorship. Studies have revealed the increasingly important role private-sector Internet and telecommunications companies play in controlling the movements of citizens in cyberspace. Differences between international human rights norms and Asian countries’ domestic laws and regulation practices are considered as the major causes of trouble for digital technology companies. The chapter focuses on the role of the companies in challenging the domestic laws of the Asian countries that are not in sync with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights helping the citizens, as well as themselves, in practicing freedom of expression and privacy rights.

Keywords:   digital technology companies, censorship, cyberspace, international human rights, Asian countries, freedom of expression, privacy rights
