At the Web We Want festival in Londan, Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the Web, continued his call for a Magna Carta for Internet rights, including free speech and privacy. He said his biggest fear is that the Web will be controlled either by corporations or governments.
“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. 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.""
