Hague declaration for free and open standards

We call on all governments to:
1. Procure only information technology that implements free and open standards;
2. Deliver e-government services based exclusively on free and open standards;
3. Use only free and open digital standards in their own activities.

This is what The Digital Standards Organization (www.digistan.org) demands. The reasons why they are demanding this is

  • Government information, services and resources are increasingly provided virtually rather than physically
  • Freedom of speech and association are increasingly exercised on line rather than in person
  • The Internet and the Web provide an unprecedented avenue to equality of education and opportunity for all peoples throughout the world

You can support them by signing their petition.
