A free network is one in which:

  • You have the right to join the network, and the responsibility to extend this set of rights to anyone, under these same conditions.
  • You have the right to understand the network, to know its components, and to spread knowledge of its elements and principles.
  • You have the right to offer services and content to the network on your own terms.
  • You have the freedom to use the network for any purpose as long as you don't harm the operation of the network itself, the rights of other participants, or the principles of neutrality that allow contents and services to flow without deliberate interference.
