The Declaration Of Internet Freedom

Image Title1

Appropriately timed for the 4th of July, our friends over at TechDirt and a coalition of public interest groups have announced the Declaration of Internet Freedom. The basic principles are simple:

Declaration of Internet Freedom

We stand for a free and open Internet.

We support transparent and participatory processes for making Internet policy and the establishment of five basic principles:

Expression: Don’t censor the Internet.

Access: Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks.

Openness: Keep the Internet an open network where everyone is free to connect, communicate, write, read, watch, speak, listen, learn, create and innovate.

Innovation: Protect the freedom to innovate and create without permission. Don’t block new technologies, and don’t punish innovators for their users’ actions.

Privacy: Protect privacy and defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used.

Whether you agree or disagree with any of the points, join the discussion here.
