freedom of speech in the digital universe

Watch the video of the panel. The panel took place on 17 April 2011.

The digital world provides almost unlimited opportunities to exercise the right to express onself freely. Meanwhile, attempts to control this freedom (by politicians, companies, even individuals themselves) are gathering pace. Is the freedom of the press different from the freedom of speech of each individual, and if so how? What legal concepts, if any, need redefining in this brave new world?
