Censorship is a kind of perception that we encounter in every aspect of our life. And brands use it in the perceptions of people. Today, we know that only the governments do not apply, and also companies are censoring products and services. Although censorship is shown as a positive attitude for the necessary reasons, it is possible to visualize the opposite.
Censorship is a restriction on companies’ product names, covers or contents because of various reasons. Unlike state institutions, even giant corporations are the ones who use the most. Companies reject any content they see as threats to the image they have, and the producers or artists are subordinate to them because they are big corporations. TV channels, programs, series, movies, magazines and album covers, lyrics, news content, and much more. I do not disapprove the censorship against studies that deal with news content and social issues, even though. I find it morally correct, that the restrictions that do not fit into the family structure are obscene due to the fact that children are accessible to all kinds of products.
On the other hand, censorship seems to be quite oppressive with regard to freedom and social life. For example, a journalist’s opponent’s opinion, or the fact that get big corporations into a lot of trouble, is at the same time overshadowing freedom of thought. This situation is seen both between the parent and sub company that have company marriages and also between the two countries. Today, many autocratic countries or companies like China and Arab countries continue to do so. The artist is not able to perform the art, and the media writers can not perform their profession properly. A journalist should not be denied just because he reported against the parent company or revealed facts. Therefore, this mentality is the same as the death penalty of the printing house in the past, and it is a kind of obstacle to suppressing the opposition and revealing the facts. And in this mindset, freedom cannot be the subject, and it does not criticize or emerge societies which cannot think and accept all kind of force and obligations.
Exposure to copyright is another limitation of freedom when a different field is used without commercial purpose, while the voice of the imposed trademark is not audible. As a simple citizen, you are in a party that you have organized in the name of non-profit entertainment, you are in a copyrighted costume, so let’s go to the police for another thing. The censorship, which is the result of branding, harms human rights while protecting copyright. It would not be right for large corporations and organizations that have economic power to narrow down to those who do not comply with the company or the power strategy as social, cultural, artistic and humanitarian windows. This means both the synergy between the companies and the indirect and implicit rights of those who are free to live freely. Against the control that focuses on the fields we have and the choices we have that do not know in the name of branding, people are not completely blind to this reality and cannot hear it. It is possible to get the attention of others at least from the result of the reactions shown.
Finally, As Naomi Klein says, “This fundamental economic, humanitarian concern is what contributes to the spread of anti-corporate activism.” People against the current monopoly and gentleness must start to open their eyes, they should know the hidden dimensions of the census, not just the ensemble, but also the social areas, and know the unknown aspects of these companies and ridicules that swallow areas and people as well as choices. Because censorship which is used by big companies does not stop protecting human rights as opposed to what is believed to be, but it also leads to the perception that it hinders rights and gives them back to you.
