The founder of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, is highlighting the need for intervention by multiple stakeholders to reform the Web, for the benefit of all of us. We have a choice - we don't have to stand and watch as a 'tragedy of the commons' unfolds. As voters, as consumers, and as users, we can exercise our power to demand changes to the governance of the Web, its platforms and its users, to reduce the risks to our security, our privacy, our social justice and our democracy. 

Businesses can contribute by signing the Contract for the Web ... and by looking at their own management of privacy, data security, and ethical policies regarding publication and data use.
