Italian parliament drafts a declaration of Internet rights

Philip Willan | July 29, 2015
The Italian parliament wants to have its say in the creation of an international legal framework promoting freedom, equality and access to cyberspace for all, and on Tuesday it presented a Declaration of Internet Rights that it will bring to the Internet Governance Forum in Brazil in November.

Scorza was also emphatic that Italy's Magna Carta of Cyberspace constituted a message of hope, "inviting the belief that our country still has something to say at a global level when people talk of web, digital and future".

Online commentators on the Corriere della Sera website were less enthusiastic, slamming the Internet charter as a costly exercise in banality.

The predominantly critical comments were subsequently removed.
