The Council of Europe has released the Guide to Human Rights of Internet users as a tool for the Internet users to learn about their human rights online, their possible limitations, and available remedies for such limitations. According to the Guide, human rights and fundamental freedoms apply equally offline and online. This principle includes respect for the rights and freedoms of other Internet users. The Guide provides Internet users with information about what rights and freedoms mean in practice in the context of the Internet, how these rights and freedoms can be relied and acted upon, as well as how to access remedies. The Guide is developed as an evolving document, open to periodic updating. The Guide is based on the European Convention on Human Rights and other Council of Europe conventions and instruments that deal with various aspects of human rights protection.
