Crowdsourced Agenda for Free Expression

Acknowledgements

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

We are, in particular, indebted to the contributions of the Our Fair Deal coalition members, whose expert input has helped shape our crowdsourcing project as well as our final report. We owe special thanks to Article 19’s “Principles on Freedom of Expression and Copyright in the Digital Age” and the Authors Alliance’s “Principles and Proposals for Copyright Reform,” which helped us craft more concrete policy proposals that can translate the wishes of our community into law.

We also thank peer reviewers who provided critical, in-depth comments and suggestions, which served to strengthen the quality and overall presentation of our agenda. Any shortcomings or oversights are in spite, not because, of their generous contributions, and are entirely the responsibility of the authors.

Lastly, the pro-Internet community has always been at the heart of this project. This report is primarily based on the invaluable input of the 40,079 people who participated in our drag-and-drop tool to crowdsource a vision for sharing and creativity online, and the energy of over 300,000 people around the world who have used OpenMedia as a platform for action on free expression. Their concern for their rights to share and create in the digital age is the driving force behind our work – so, to our community, thank you so much <3
