This past weekend, Twitchy reported that Darrell Issa was teasing some news for today about internet freedom. Well, it looks like the cat’s out of the bag: Issa has added his name to the list of supporters of the Declaration of Internet Freedom. The Declaration stands for five basic principles:

Expression: Don’t censor the Internet.

Access: Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks.

Openness: Keep the Internet an open network where everyone is free to connect, communicate, write, read, watch, speak, listen, learn, create and innovate.

Innovation: Protect the freedom to innovate and create without permission. Don’t block new technologies, and don’t punish innovators for their users’ actions.

Privacy: Protect privacy and defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used.

In signing the Declaration, Issa has joined hands with some unlikely allies, like the ACLU, Netroots Nation, and The Harry Potter Alliance (yes, that Harry Potter). Clearly internet freedom doesn’t know political boundaries; go here if you’re interested in adding your signature.
