Wasting Valuable Time: "The Declaration of Internet Rights" "We Stand for a Free and Open Internet: The Declaration of Internet Rights" http://j.mp/N7BXJe (Public Knowledge) "Public Knowledge is excited to be part of the 91 organizations and 38 influencers signing on to the Declaration of Internet Freedom, which launched today. As Cory Doctorow succinctly put it, "There is no copyright policy, only Internet policy; there is no Internet policy, only policy." Today's focus on increased IP enforcement will have a dramatic impact on the way people interact with the most democratic communications platform that has ever existed: the internet. Disproportionate IP enforcement will stifle creativity and create gatekeepers that block the free flow of information online." - - - Another declaration. Words, words, words. If any kind of declaration is going to be useful to protect Internet freedoms, it's going to be much closer to a Declaration of War than anything else. In today's political environment, what's really needed is a Super PAC aimed at getting people elected who have their brains in the 21st century, not in the 19th and earlier. If we don't start "playing the game" the way the "big boys" do in Washington and around the world, we're going to be crushed like bugs. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (email@example.com): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Data Wisdom Explorers League: http://www.dwel.org - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren / Twitter: http://vortex.com/t-lauren Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
