In an interview, Sergey Brin says that countries try to control data flow.
He also said that Apple and Facebook are villains.
The co-founder of Google, Sergey Brin, said he is worried about the future of the internet. In an interview with British newspaper “The Guardian”, he said that “there are powerful forces that are arrayed against the Internet open on all sides of the world.”
Brin believes that country governments pressure companies and Internet service providers, trying to control the flow of information on the web, causing them to be the main threat to freedom of the internet world.
Other villains, he says, are the entertainment industry, trying to stop piracy, and companies like Apple and Facebook, which controls which programs can be launched in their platforms. “I’m more worried now than it was in the past. It’s scary,” he said.
The executive accuses Facebook of not wanting to share data with other users of their companies, and says it was “impossible to create a company like Google is the Internet was dominated by social networking.” “You have to play with their rules, which are very restrictive.”
“We do everything possible to protect the information. If we had a magic wand and we are not obliged to respond to the laws of the United States, would be great. If we lived in a jurisdiction where all the magical world confide, would also be great. We are doing our best possible, “Brin told the” Guardian “.
