[IRP] Brainstorm...What do we call the punchy principles?

Thanks Ginger and Robert.

I like it...but I'm still wondering if it captures what we're doing enough? They are principles *for* something (internet governance/people's internet/...), and we believe they are *key*, rather than just a list of ideas.   Also, the document is really a list of principles rather than rights and principles (which is more the domain of the Charter rather than these punchy principles).  Hmmmm..... Maybe the original "10 key principles for internet governance" is the way to go.  What do you think?

All the best,

+1 on "10 Internet Rights and Principles" 

I like this because it is succinct while effectively branding IRP.

Do we want to differentiate from 'other' principles? Identify with IRP?

10 Internet Rights and Principles

Hi all

Whilst punchy principles works for us, it doesn't for the final doc!  So as a working title at the moment we have: "Ten principles to govern the Internet".  Does that capture our aims enough, and is it catchy enough?  Please send any ideas you have through (bearing in mind our need to be punchy!)....


10 Principles for a People's Internet
10 Principles for a People-oriented Internet
10 Principles for a rights-based Internet

Or maybe the original title is straightforward and simple as it is....?

Thoughts please!
