The two lawmakers who spearheaded a protest in January against controversial antipiracy legislation said today that they want the country to adopt an Internet Bill of Rights. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), said today at the Personal Democracy Forum 2012 in New York that the country needs a way to guarantee citizens their Internet freedoms.

"What we need is a way to measure how we're going to ensure the voice of [Internet] networks is protected," Wyden said during an interview the two lawmakers gave to Andrew Rasiej, an entrepreneur and founder of the Personal Democracy Forum.

Issa listed some of what he and Wyden would like to see in a Web Bill of Rights.

Such a document would state that all Internet users:
--Have the right to use the Web ("Freedom")
--Have the right to use the Web without censorship or obstruction ("Open")
--Should be treated equally while using the Web, an obvious nod at Net Neutrality ("Equality")

Issa and Wyden want to make sure that the victories against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) -- antipiracy legislation that was heavily supported by the film and music sectors -- aren't eroded or picked apart over time via other pieces of legislation.

The two lawmakers are coming off a stunning triumph when they helped lead what came to be massive opposition to SOPA and PIPA. The two said they don't have a completely formed plan about how the Bill of Rights will look but that they are encouraging Internet users to help supply ideas at Opengovfoundation.org.

What do you think about this Digital Bill of Rights? What should this bill include?

I think we need one. I think for them to want to put restrictions on the web is barbaric. Why now all of a sudden after all the years of it's existence?

great idea this would be, but remember. it would only stop the united states from doing anything. this is a battle being fought all over the world for free internet. there was a bill in canada that almost went thru with the very same implications as SOPA and PIPA, and also i read an article on the escapist about a copywrite bill that was passed in japan were they can charge and arrest japanese citizens who commit copywrite infringement even outside the country. so its a good start, but the war is still going on.

definitly a step in the right direction. we just need more people around the world to let there voices be heard and stop other countrys from trying this stuff.
