The free internet act

reddit is drafting a Free Internet Act wiki-style!  Start here since you need to login to participate: http://www.reddit.com/r/fia/comments/p25k0/the_free_internet_act

Quick description (thanks to Peter Suber on the Open Access Tracking Project):

“The Free Internet Act: To promote prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation by preventing the restriction of liberty and preventing the means of censorship. FIA will allow internet users to browse freely without any means of censorship, users have the right to free speech and to free knowledge; we govern the content of the internet, governments don’t. However enforcements/laws must also be put into place to protect copyrighted content….”

Sounds like something for the IPC to support! (Heather M.)
