web enclosures

Tim Berners-Lee has been reported in the Guardian as a continuing champion of web freedom in the face of the Government’s attempts to control the internet.

Is this similar to the Enclosures of the 19th century and is Tim a modern version of Thomas Willingale and will there be a http://www.LoppingHall to mark the battle for freedom against government big brother?
