US Gets 60 Countries to Sign 'Declaration for the Future of the Internet'.

The US and dozens of other governments around the world have signed a declaration that says they will cooperate to keep the internet “open, free, global, interoperable, reliable, and secure.” 

The calls for action in this "Declaration for the Future of the Internet," announced Thursday, might not seem controversial, but the last few years have seen increasing moves by governments to raise regulatory barriers that may splinter the global network, while others have restricted or outright blocked internet access for their citizens.  

The roughly 2,000-word document (PDF) reflected a year or so of consultation by Biden administration officials with other governments, as well as with private-sector, academia, and civil-society representatives.
