Contributions to the Digital Bill of Rights and Other Top Comments

With the recent news about Edward Snowden and the NSA snooping, we’ve come to realize that the government has access to an unsettling amount of our online data. So Mashable, with the help of our community, created a first draft of the Digital Bill of Rights to claim certain digital freedoms and protections for Internet users.

Readers contributed their ideas by commenting directly on the collaborative Google Doc, which was modified according to the feedback. The Digital Bill of Rights initiative sparked active discussions about web cache, privacy rights of the deceased, social media and more.
