Internet Access is 'A Fundamental Right'

Four out of five people around the world say that Internet access is a fundamental right.

BBC: In a poll of more than 27,000 people in 26 countries, researchers found that about 80 percent of adults agree or strongly agree with the idea that Internet access is a fundamental right. The sentiment is most strong in South Korea, the most wired nation on earth, with 96 percent of that country's inhabitants believing the Internet is a right.

However, many of those polled also expressed concerns about the dangers of the Internet, particularly the possibility of fraud, the ease of access to violent and explicit content and privacy violations.
