The directors of the Institute for Technology & Society of Rio (ITS Rio), in a partnership with the Brazilian Ministry of Justice, led a team that offered legal and strategic support for the public consultation that resulted in the draft bill for the Marco Civil da Internet.

Approved by Congress in April 2014, the Marco Civil is a milestone in international law, which guarantees the protection of internet users’ civil rights. ITS Rio continues promoting improvements regarding the Marco Civil and facing challenges caused by interpretations of the law.

Along with participating in several national and international events that discuss the Marco Civil and its main topics, members of ITS Rio have continuously published work on the subject.
