Censorship and ISPs liability

Not a cybercrime problem as such, there is no criminal offence here, but rather a question of liability of ISPs in protecting fundamental rights. Only one person really talks about the Great Wall of China in technology, isolating very effectively the country and questioning fundamental assumptions of the West about the link between economic development and democracy: Goldsmith and Wu in their book of “Who controls the internet?”. Note that newspapers tend to keep silent on that issue and yet they should be at the forefront the battle, no?
