Human Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility « Chemical Generation Singapore

Another good prod from The Economist below. Corporate social responsibility for Internet companies from fair trade, to environmental sustainability and also to human rights. Companies must have responsibility while the public has rights. That is the meme over and over again for big companies like Google or Hotmail in allowing governments to snoop or criminals to act with impunity. Some privacy should be protected and some should be unprotected depending on the situation. The basic rule I think is that once the individual does not behave responsibly in the Internet, he forgoes his rights to privacy and protection. Sounds fair. The question of course is who determines what i”s responsible”. The interesting sub-story is about Alaa abd el Fattah , who is either a witness or an accused in civil-religious unrest in Egypt recently. The wold wide web wild wild West.
