The US government says it must be able to fight against piracy and cyber attacks. And that means imposing more restrictions online. But proposed legislation could seriously curb freedom of speech and privacy, threatening the internet as we know it. Can and should the internet be controlled? Who gets that power?

Fault Lines looks at the fight for control of the web, life in the digital age and the threat to cyber freedom.
