The inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, marks the 25th anniversary of his invention, saying that the web gives people "power". But he has called for a global digital "bill of rights" similar to the Magna Carta to protect internet users as the medium he created prepares to mark its 25th anniversary. Sir Tim Berners-Lee called on the world to take a stand against surveillance on the web - and suggested that its independence should be treated as a human rights issue. He said people who use the web should be able to use it to communicate without being blocked or feeling that somebody is "looking over our shoulder. The people of the world have to be constantly looking out for it - constantly making sure, through action, protest, that it doesn't happen," he said. Sir Tim added that he is very proud of the "spirit of international collaboration" that the web has encouraged. Report by Tom Ellis.
