description: Abstract: "This report explores how the internationally recognized right to freedom of expression should apply to the Internet. It examines existing jurisprudence from major international and regional human rights instruments and explores new challenges (and opportunities) for freedom of expression in the digital age. Finally, given the unique nature of the Internet, the report puts forth progressive interpretations of human rights norms to ensure the broadest extension of human rights protections in the digital age" -- [p.1].
