Dear Nick

I have heard about the proposal to work on a "declaration of internet
user rights" which was originally raised by Vittorio as a declaration
"similarly to the "passenger rights" posters
that we see in every European airport."

Could you please advise who is planning to work on this initiative. Me an I
believe some of the participants of the Internet Rights and Principles
coalition would like to contribute.
