NETmundial identified a set of common principles and important values that contribute for an inclusive, multistakeholder, effective, legitimate, and evolving Internet governance framework and recognized that the Internet is a global resource which should be managed in the public interest.
Human rights are universal as reflected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and that should underpin Internet governance principles. Rights that people have offline must also be protected online, in accordance with international human rights legal obligations, including the International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Those rights include, but are not limited to:
Intermediary liability limitations should be implemented in a way that respects and promotes economic growth, innovation, creativity and free flow of information. In this regard, cooperation among all stakeholders should be encouraged to address and deter illegal activity, consistent with fair process.
Internet governance must respect, protect and promote cultural and linguistic diversity in all its forms.
Internet should continue to be a globally coherent, interconnected, stable, unfragmented, scalable and accessible network-of-networks, based on a common set of unique identifiers and that allows data packets/information to flow freely end- to-end regardless of the lawful content.
Security, stability and resilience of the Internet should be a key objective of all stakeholders in Internet governance. As a universal global resource, the Internet should be a secure, stable, resilient, reliable and trustworthy network. Effectiveness in addressing risks and threats to security and stability of the Internet depends on strong cooperation among different stakeholders.
The Internet should be preserved as a fertile and innovative environment based on an open system architecture, with voluntary collaboration, collective stewardship and participation, and upholds the end-to-end nature of the open Internet, and seeks for technical experts to resolve technical issues in the appropriate venue in a manner consistent with this open, collaborative approach.
The ability to innovate and create has been at the heart of the remarkable growth of the Internet and it has brought great value to the global society. For the preservation of its dynamism, Internet governance must continue to allow permissionless innovation through an enabling Internet environment, consistent with other principles in this document. Enterprise and investment in infrastructure are essential components of an enabling environment.
Internet governance should promote open standards, informed by individual and collective expertise and decisions made by rough consensus, that allow for a global, interoperable, resilient, stable, decentralized, secure, and interconnected network, available to all. Standards must be consistent with human rights and allow development and innovation.
I think highly of the multi-stakeholder-model in Internet governance
There is an urgent need to protect vulnerable young and adult individuals minds from harmful data and informations, a safe system to prove age, dbs (desclosure barring service), and mental fitness. Perhaps the need of a "Web Surf Licence" for everyone safety, just like a driving licence.

Creative industries, and particularly news content providers and publishers have a special duty to engage actively in the emerging global Internet governance and promote the principles of a free open web for an open digital society where opinions can be held without interference and where information and ideas can be sought, received, and imparted regardless of frontiers.
The Internet is for everyone, it should be free, open and secure for all.

The Principles will facilitate or encourage innovation and innovation leads to the expansion of the internet. With expansion of the internet comes greater opportunities and a multiplication of economic and other benefits to individuals, organisations and governments.
I support the NETmundial Principles because I understand the importance of protecting the open, democratic architecture of the internet, and I recognize the efforts the NETmundial initiative makes in this regard.
