How does censorship affect the world today?


Germany is a country without censorship - at least that's what the Basic Law says. But is that also true? The Space Frogs take a closer look at the term "censorship" and wonder whether - and if so, where - there is censorship on the Internet.

The Space Frogs are among Germany's best-known and most successful YouTube stars: Strong-opinion, funny and occasionally a bit crazy, they explain the analog and digital world to their community of over a million subscribers. Now they are on the road “on behalf of democracy” and are investigating the big questions of network policy: Will the Internet be censored? What is net neutrality and how does it affect us? And how do algorithms and artificial intelligence influence what we see on the internet?
