Bill of Digital Rights

Cory Doctorow & Margaret Atwood signed the UN petition for digital rights.                                   


I'm happier to support this movement than the one led by tech firms. A long list of tech companies signed an open letter to the US government regarding digital surveillance, including:
  • Apple Inc.
  • Facebook Inc.
  • Google Inc.
  • LinkedIn Corp.
  • Microsoft Corp.
  • Twitter Inc.
  • Yahoo! Inc.
The tech firms are pushing back against the government using personal digital information, but they're not so interested in limiting their own use of this information.

If you would like to add your voice, you might consider this petition on WhiteHouse.gov.
