+ - Brazil approves Internet Bill of Rights

Submitted by Dr.Potato
Dr.Potato writes: After more than three years being discussed, Brazil's Internet Bill of Rights was approved on April 22nd ( http://www.engadget.com/2014/0... and in Portuguese http://g1.globo.com/politica/n... ). It was rushed through senate in order president Dilma Roussef could sign it during the meeting on internet governance that occurs in São Paulo this week. In the bill of rights, among other things, net neutrality was maintained, providers will not be legally responsible for content published by users (but are forced to take it down when legally requested) and internet providers are obliged to keep records of users' access for six months and can't pass this responsability to other companies.
