I heard aboutabout Free Culture Forum and I noticed that Creative Commons
wasn't present there.
why not for merging. the best is to look for differences between the two
charters (I guess mostly that is in the A2K part) and discuss how to add
that. we clearly need more support from organizations and individuals to
endorse the IR charter. maybe we need to finish the first version and after
we can discuss about combination ?

> Hello,
> I have mostly just lurked on this list so far, but I am writing about the
> APC Charter of Human Rights and Principles on the Internet, and a proposal
> that has come up from another group that I'm involved with (the Free Culture
> Forum Coalition), suggesting that it could be merged with its charter, the
> Charter for Innovation, Creativity and Access to Knowledge (see
> http://fcforum.net/).
> I like both charters, but they have their strengths and weaknesses.  As I
> see it, the APC Charter has an excellent and logical structure, but it has
> been drafted by a fairly narrow group.  The current version of the FCForum
> charter is the opposite: the structure is a bit of a mess, but there was a
> large coalition of many groups brought together (in person and online) to
> produce it.
> Aside from those differences, there is quite a lot of overlap between the
> two charters and it could make sense, I think, to work towards combining
> them.  So this is a very tentative initial email, sent at the request of the
> convenor of the FCForum, to see what the participants of this list think
> about the idea of merging the two processes, to produce a single unified
> version 2.0 charter on Internet rights and A2K.
> Thoughts?
