Defining Internet freedom?

Interesting US State Department eJournal issue on Internet freedom - with several well-placed (Epstein, Bambauer, Yu) but introductory academic contributions on Internet freedom and intermediary liability - with obvious implications for net neutrality but more so for their allies' views on self-regulation: "Even in more democratic countries such as the United Kingdom, Brazil, and Turkey, Internet freedom is increasingly undermined by legal harassment, opaque filtering procedures, and expanding surveillance." Well, yes, but you're in a glass house on this one!
