Inventor of World Wide Web warns of threat to internet

London (AFP) - The British inventor of the World Wide Web warned on Saturday that the freedom of the internet is under threat by governments and corporations interested in controlling the web.

Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist who invented the web 25 years ago, called for a bill of rights that would guarantee the independence of the internet and ensure users' privacy.

"If a company can control your access to the internet, if they can control which websites they go to, then they have tremendous control over your life," Berners-Lee said at the London "Web We Want" festival on the future of the internet.

"If a Government can block you going to, for example, the opposition's political pages, then they can give you a blinkered view of reality to keep themselves in power."

"Suddenly the power to abuse the open internet has become so tempting both for government and big companies."

Berners-Lee, 59, is director of the World Wide Web Consortium, a body which develops guidelines for the development of the internet.

He called for an internet version of the "Magna Carta", the 13th century English charter credited with guaranteeing basic rights and freedoms.

Something like this is utterly necessary, but the problem is that those who DON'T want it are so powerful they WILL find a way around or through it. They are "above the Law" because they OWN any of the higher-ups they NEED to own in order to accomplish what they want to accomplish. There HAS to be around this, but I sure don't see one.

"I was thinking just how long did someone at the Tavistock Institute of The City Of London have to spend to devise this new non gender terminology. Hours and hours sitting on their rear hole for sure no doubt. :) SNAFUBAR!"
