Crowdsourcing Net Rights

The goal of this part of the project is understand and popularize the emerging idea of net rights, as pioneered by the idea of a “magna carta” for the Web by Tim Berners-Lee. To achieve that aim, we set up a contributive categorization on Net Rights and augment existing corpus with links to related technologies and expert points of views.

The first step is to collect previous contributions on Net Rights and related systems, and annotate them after holding seminars on related subjects. Afterwards, we will in combination with an MOOC (online course), discuss the ethics these net rights with a global audience.
