Launched by a large coalition of privacy groups, Web sites, and individuals, the Declaration of Internet Freedom is the start of a process striving to keep the Internet free and open. The organizations and people who kicked off this process are looking for other Internet users to discuss the ideas, share their own thoughts, and sign the declaration.
The Declaration of Internet Freedom advocates 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.
