As the interests of powerful businesses become more embedded in the online world, so these corporations seek greater exemption from liability. They are manipulating governments and policy-makers, blocking and filtering content, and retaining and storing personal data at the cost of individual access and privacy. In this compelling account, Monica Horten confronts the deepening cooperation between large companies and the State.

And the results are chilling. The Closing of the Net boldly tackles the deep and divisive controversies surrounding individual rights today.
