  EVENT ADVISORY   *FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 26, 2012* *CONTACT: Will Rinehart
(202) 599-0408*   Will the Real Internet Freedom Please Stand Up?
*Sen. Rand Paul to Present Vision of Internet Freedom*

Debates over Internet and telecom policy are increasingly being framed in
terms of "Internet Freedom." But what does this lofty concept really mean?

A vaguely worded Declaration of Internet
Freedom<http://click.icptrack.com/icp/relay.php?r=68363491&msgid=229906&act=6EQ2&c=871187&destination=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.internetdeclaration.org>was
recently issued by a broad coalition, some of which are already using
the document to push for increased regulation, such as net neutrality
mandates. TechFreedom and the Competitive Enterprise Institute organized a
counter-declaration<http://click.icptrack.com/icp/relay.php?r=68363491&msgid=229906&act=6EQ2&c=871187&destination=http%3A%2F%2Fdeclarationofinternetfreedom.org%2F>signed
by a coalition of free market groups and leading academics that
shares much common ground, but emphasizes restraint, respect for the rule
of law, and humility as guiding principles for policymakers approaching the
Internet and digital markets.

Can these two visions be reconciled or are they fighting for very different
goals?  What is real Internet Freedom?
