<nettime> data sovereignty for some

From :

"Reuters didn't say what specific issues CFIUS raised, but the US government has worried in the past that companies in China could help the Chinese government spy on users."

In other news, 85% of intra-Euro traffic goes through US of A*

So far, the only countries that effectively imposed national borders on data traffic are USA, China and (soon to start) Russia. As all belong to the nuclear club, I wonder if that's the set from which other data sovereignty projects will come. Perhaps it's a pre-requisite.


* due to a brilliant propaganda, attempts to curtail this are widely deemed to be "attack on freedoms".
