The Brazilian Chamber of Deputies has finally given its approval to the main text of a bill that aims to regulate the internet and protect the rights of its users.
A few weeks back, World Wide Web (WWW)-creator Sir Tim Berners-Lee had called for a "Bill of Rights" for the internet on its 25th anniversary. Yesterday, Brazil became the first country to pass a bill for the internet.
The new internet law called "Marco Civil da Internet" will function as a constitution for the internet. It will ensure certain rights, principles, and obligations related to internet.
