Why Trust Techopedia

As the Internet has grown, it has increasingly become our information hub for every topic imaginable. That’s why Internet users and other activists are discussing and debating the importance of a free and open Internet. The Declaration of Internet Freedom, expressed below in infographic form, was developed by as a result of a partnership between more than 100 individuals and companies, many of which were involved in the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) campaign in January 2012. The infographic aims to express the key components of a free and open Internet, and increase public discussion and awareness around the topic

The preamble to the declaration reads:

“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.”
