Cipherspace is the encrypted (and often pseudonymous or fully anonymous) equialent to cyberspace. Some knowns cipherspaces are; freenet, the Invisible IRC Proxy-project (IIP), the Invisible Internet Project (I2P), direct connect (DC) and some anonymous mailforwarding services.

In cipherspace, it is supposed to be impossible to know who's who. Therefor, it is impossible to enforce any censorship and impossible to enforce any law. Because of that, stuff like copyright is impossible to uphold inside the cipherspace.
