Bennett Haselton believes that de-centralized information storage and 
transmission systems - so called 'Distributed Cloud' networks like 
- will not prevent Internet censorship in the long run. He has written a 
short essay http://www.peacefire.org/techpapers/distributed-cloud.html 
pointing out the flaws he perceives in these systems.

Ian Clarke, the architect of the FreeNet project, responds here 
http://slashdot.org/~Sanity/journal/37275, defending Distributed Cloud 
systems and their abilities to prevent censorship, protect the identities 
of their users, and shield users from legal liability.
