Is The Internet A Human Right? 

Vint Cerf, who is recognized as one of the "Father's of the Internet" wrote an Op-Ed for the New York Times, Internet Access Is Not A Human Right, which has caused a bit of a stir, especially since back in June the UN declared internet access to be just that. We spoke with Matt Mora, founder of Causes From The Heart and Mora Media Management, about this very issue. Is the internet a human right, a civil right, or something else entirely?

It's obviously very controversial... Ideologically and philosophically I think it might be more of a civil right... my challenge is that when it becomes a civil right, you leave it susceptible to manipulation by anyone who has influence over it.
