Google co-founder Sergey Brin revealed in an interview that he's worried about the future of the Internet because free and open access is being threatened on all sides and around the world. Brin points to governments that block Internet access, but also the entertainment which is pushing for legislation like SOPA and even Apple due to how closed the iOS operating system is.
In a new interview for The Guardian, he states that in his opinion, " ... very powerful forces that have lined up against the open internet on all sides and around the world." He added, "I am more worried than I have been in the past. It's scary."
He cites a number of reasons for his deep concern. One of them is that a number of governments, such as Iran, are trying to control access to the Internet, blocking the freedom to use the net by its citizens. He adds that the entertainment industry also wants to limit Internet access under the umbrella of fighting online piracy..
