The internet is less free than last year.

The internet is getting less free year by year with governments passing more laws to restrict online speech and increase monitoring of users.

That’s according to New York-based Freedom House which on Friday published its fifth annual study of internet freedom around the globe.

Which is the most free country? Iceland, apparently, with a satisfying 6 points, followed by Estonia (which this week announced it would offer e-citizenship) with 8 points. Canada comes next with 15, then Australia and Germany are tied with 17 points a piece. And as for the Home of Freedom™? The United States comes sixth with 19 points.
