Berners-Lee calls out governments and ISPs over online snooping, net neutrality

TechRadar - Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee has spoken about the importance of net neutrality, making data open and sharable, and a need for the public to hold governments to account over their online surveillance activities.

Speaking at a press Q&A at IP Expo, he said: "We all need to make sure that when contingency powers are put in place, there needs to be a system that we all know about where an agency watches the watchers and guards the guards.

"It needs public discussions and it's tricky. it's a difficult problem but we need something more powerful and transparent."
