More And More People Sign On To The Declaration Of Internet Freedom
from the good-news dept
Earlier this month, we took part in the launch of The Declaration of Internet Freedom, which got a fair bit of attention, nearly all of it positive. There were a few critics, but it appears that an awful lot of people and organizations find themselves in agreement with these basic principles and are willing to sign on. Already over 1,500 organizations and 50,000 individuals have signed on, including at least two members of Congress (Ron Wyden in the Senate and Darrell Issa in the House).
There’s also been a ton of ongoing discussion, including our own efforts over at Step2. These conversations continue to move forward, with various events being planned around the globe over the next few months to get more people talking about these principles and thinking about what they mean to them and why they’re important. Either way, it seems this project is off to a nice start.
