The Brazilian government this week passed new legislation aimed at protecting internet privacy and guaranteeing open access to the web. As the Associated Press reports, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff signed the so-called internet constitution into law yesterday before speaking at a conference on web governance in Sao Paulo, where she hailed the legislation as critical to protecting human rights and net neutrality. The internet you want is only possible in an environment of respect for human rights, Rousseff said in a statement on her website, especially privacy and freedom of expression. Rousseff has been an outspoken advocate for internet privacy after it was revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) had been eavesdropping on her telephone calls and emails.
