    Default Declaration of Internet Freedom

    Happy 4th of July, most of you probably won't/can't burn fireworks because of the heat I bet. Ehhh funny thing is, temperatures aren't that bad around here... even though 1000+ other places are seeing records.

    Declaration of Internet Freedom

    Anyways, this is starting to gain some steam. Many prominent people, companies, and advocacy/civil liberties groups that you may or may not know, have signed this.

    If you own a small business of any kind, sign up.

    Declaration of Internet Freedom


    We believe that a free and open Internet can bring about a better world. To keep the Internet free and open, we call on communities, industries and countries to recognize these principles. We believe that they will help to bring about more creativity, more innovation and more open societies.

    We are joining an international movement to defend our freedoms because we believe that they are worth fighting for.

    Let’s discuss these principles — agree or disagree with them, debate them, translate them, make them your own and broaden the discussion with your community — as only the Internet can make possible.

    Join us in keeping the Internet free and open.


    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.
    In other news,

    The European Parliament decided to tell ACTA to die in fire.

    European Parliament Declares Its Independence From The European Commission With A Massive Rejection Of ACTA. Now What?

    Verizon and a few other ISPs want to scrap net-neutrality.

    CISPA, SECURE IT, and CSA still looms, however. TPP and the ITU are the two organizations you really need to look at.

    Act now, save your internet, signing this one takes a few seconds.

    Technically near the death of ACTA.

    This thing started a few days ago but has been in the works ever since SOPA and PIPA

    It is more like AD SOPA/PIPA.
