Crowdsourced Agenda for Free Expression

Internet users from across the globe have come together to create a crowdsourced vision for free expression online. Over 300,000 people from 155 countries worldwide helped shape our roadmap for a Digital Future that includes us all.

As Big Media lobbyists push restrictive copyright proposals around the world, the Our Digital Future report explores the lived experiences of Internet users, artists, and entrepreneurs who envision fairer rules for sharing and collaborating online.

Dive into the Report:


At its best, the Internet encourages us to share, use our creativity, and express ourselves freely. It fosters the same key experiences that help us preserve our imaginations and our capacity to learn as we grow from children into adults. What we’ve heard from the hundreds of thousands of Internet users worldwide who have participated in OpenMedia’s projects is that the Internet has the power to bring people together around these common learning experiences and shared values. 


While media conglomerate interventions in copyright and intellectual property law have envisioned (and sometimes created) regimes where the needs of these conglomerates trump the possibilities of the open Internet, our crowdsourcing participants envision a regime where both sharing and creativity flourish. From their input, and the many other elements of the “Our Digital Future” process, we’ve distilled three key recommendations.


When it comes to government decisions that will affect all of us, OpenMedia doesn’t just want a seat at the table – instead, we actively work to put citizens at the center of government decision-making, and our own decision-making as an organization. In order to include as broad a community as possible in the conversation about copyright laws, we came up with several online engagement tools and strategies that were as simple and user-friendly as possible.
