Free ExpressionEveryone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.Article 19, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, United NationsThe Internet is the “most participatory marketplace of mass speech that this country and indeed the world has yet seen.”US Supreme Court, ACLU v. Reno (1996)
PrivacyAnonymous pamphlets, leaflets, brochures and even books have played an important role in the progress of mankind.US Supreme Court, Talley v. California (1960)No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.Article 12, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, United Nations
Fair UseNo Internet policy should prevent individuals or businesses from using their full imagination and creativity to create and label products, services and content for the Internet. Domain names, the great street signs of Internet speech, must be open to entrepreneurs, small businesses, noncommercial organizations and individuals, in developed and developing countries, now and in the future. Domain Name Rights Coalition 1999
Due ProcessIt's a very frightening time when something as basic as due process
is seen as somehow radical.
John Cussack, actor
