‘Internet Magna Carta’ launched by British Library

Recently an ‘Internet Magna Carta‘ has been organised by the British Library. It marks the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta and the 25th birthday of the world wide web.

The current top five ideas include:

  • ‘Not letting companies pay to control it, and not let governments restrict our right to information.’
  • ‘Being free from government censors in all countries.’
  • ‘To not allow the government and technology companies to intrude on our privacy when online; whether searching information or surfing social media, the web we want should be private and safe.’
  • ‘Being available to all without any censorship.’
  • ‘Not being censored by the government.’

Project manager Sarah Shaw had this to say on the topic:

“Nearly half of the clauses talked about students wanting to feel safe and protected online… We thought there would be more talk about freedom online, and not so much talk on more of a conservative manner.”
