Corporate responsibility: Reporters Without Borders urges Internet users and bloggers to support its recommendations on freedom of expression

Sign the petition on : http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=16119

On 6 January, Reporters Without Borders issued six concrete proposals aimed at ensuring that Internet-sector companies respect free expression when operating in repressive countries. The organisation calls on bloggers and Internet user to sign an online petition in support of this initiative.

These recommendations will be addressed to the US government and US legislators because all the companies named in this document are based in the United States. Nonetheless, they concern all democratic countries and have therefore will be sent to European Union officials and to the Secretary General of the OECD as well.
