    Rated 4.6/5 stars (75 votes cast)

    Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, France Telecom and Vodafone among others have partnered to promote free speech on the Web.

    Initiated by Yahoo after coming under fire after it gave the Chinese government information that lead to the prosecution of dissidents for their freedom of speech.

    The Global Network Initiative (GNI) (Website going live on Wednesday) has been in the works for two years as companies and internet related institutes along with human rights groups and committees to protect Journalists have been hard at work to formulate these Guidelines to support human rights in a world that is getting smaller and privacy violations have been on everyone's mind especially when these violations come straight from the governments who are supposed to be doing their jobs protecting human rights

    Unfortunately, telecom giants AT&T, Verizon, Sprint still play as Big Brother pawns, and will not be doing anything (or at least have not committed to anything) in support of the GNI

    Among the members: The Committee to Protect Journalists, Human Rights Watch, Human Rights China, Business for Social Responsibility, the Calvert Group, and Harvard University's Berkman Center for the Internet and Society, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, The Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) which is urging the US government (and companies) to promote internet freedom as an integral part of protecting human rights and advancing foreign policy, also to enforce global trade standards, create an office of Global Internet Freedom within the state department and list internet restricting companies annually, and create a minimum standards for online freedom.

    These standards are to include, protection of PIP (Personally identifiable information) as well as the integrity of that information. But the coolest thing the CDT asked for was transparency of search engine filtering and censorship with investigation of technologies used for surveillance and suppression of speech.

    Now, I wonder, what would Jordanian Municipality say in these regards? What about the countries that establish these humongous proxies to prevent internet users from accessing sites? With matters like these growing in size and popularity, I guess it's about time we get internet freedom regulated!

    Memories....

    It's a good thing. Unfortunately it only takes one 911 style incident to bring the whole house of cards down :(

    The GNI will be a great source of information regarding internet freedom. I am glad so many other institutions are supporting the Global Network Initiative. It should be interesting to see how the major U.S. telecom companies (spring, verizon, AT&T, etc.) will respond.
