It sounds like someone is getting fed up with the authoritarian abuse of net users.

The inventor of the world wide web has marked the 25th anniversary of his creation by calling for a 'Magna Carta' bill of rights to protect its users. Sir Tim Berners-Lee told BBC Breakfast the issue could be compared to the importance of human rights.

He has been an outspoken critic of government surveillance following a series of leaks from ex-US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.
Sir Tim called on people to take action and protest against surveillance

Sir Tim said the internet should be a "neutral" medium that can be used without feeling "somebody's looking over our shoulder".
He called for vigilance against surveillance by its users, adding: "The people of the world have to be constantly aware, constantly looking out for it - constantly making sure through action, protest, that it doesn't happen."

Well said Sir Tim  8) 8) 8)
