SALDANHA, Jânia Maria Lopez; BRUM, Márcio Morais  and  MELLO, Rafaela da Cruz. The New Technologies of Information and Communication Between the Freedom Promise and the Total Control Risk: Study of the Jurisprudence of the Inter-American Human Rights System. Anu. Mex. Der. Inter [online]. 2016, vol.16, pp.461-498. ISSN 1870-4654.

The article aims to analyze two phenomena of the information society: the total freedom and total control of communications and network users content. Therefore, we aimed to answer how the Inter-American System of Human Rights Protection works with the dialectic between freedom and surveillance through new technologies of information and communication. We use the dialectical method of approach and the method of comparative procedure. In the end, it is concluded that, in defending the idea of normative regulation of the forms of control over communications and data, the inter-American system believes in the effectiveness and independence of the right front of the power and the interests of other social systems as may be contrary to rights humans.

Keywords : freedom; control; new technologies; Inter-American System of Human Rights Protection.
