Are you listening US DOJ, ITU, UN???--

Inventor of WWW says an 'open' net is crucial - One News | TVNZ: "The inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, says an "open" internet, free of Government and corporate controls, is crucial. The physicist is in New Zealand for a series of public appearances, including a rare public lecture at Te Papa museum in Wellington. Three hundred people attended the lecture tonight and appropriately those who missed out on tickets could log on and watch it streamed live through the internet. Sir Tim said it was important to ensure the internet is a place of open communication. . . . The issue of copyright and internet freedom has been particularly topical in New Zealand in the past year with the ongoing extradition case for Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom. The internet tycoon is wanted by US authorities for online piracy charges related to his former file sharing website."
