We believe that a free and open Internet can bring about a better world. To keep the Internet free and open, we call on communities, industries, and countries to recognize these principles. We believe that they will help to bring about more creativity, more innovation, and more open societies.

We are joining an international movement to defend our freedoms because we believe that they are worth fighting for.

Cheezburger has signed on and worked to create this declaration, so we encourage you to help us discuss these principles on The Daily What — agree or disagree with them, debate them, translate them, make them your own, and broaden the discussion with your community — as only the Internet can make possible.

We will not be moderating comments here, so please visit this post on The Daily What to join the conversation!
