The Bill was launched on a crowdsourced platform where members of the public are given the opportunity to shape these emerging rights and freedoms.
This is the first time a Bill has been crowdsourced by a political party in New Zealand.
The Internet Rights and Freedoms Bill proposes:"
1. Ten Internet Rights and Freedoms including the right to access and net neutrality; the right to encryption technology; and the right to privacy including the right to be forgotten online
2. Establishment of an Internet Rights Commissioner, as part of the Human Rights Commission, to allow New Zealanders to seek effective remedies for human rights violations online
3. A Chief Technology Officer for New Zealand similar in scope to the role of Chief Science Advisor to champion the Internet economy
4. A call for New Zealand to support a global Internet Rights Treaty
