OECD adopts principles to protect open Internet



The openness of the Internet has been key in stimulating innovation and economic growth and stems from its multi-stakeholder model of development and management. Amid growing concern that this openness is eroding, the OECD has adopted a set of shared principles to preserve the fundamental openness of the Internet and its free flow of information. The resulting OECD Council Recommendation on Principles for Internet Policy Making (December 2011) stresses the need for continued flexible regulation and policy making to ensure an open and dynamic Internet.
