TED | Edward Snowden speaks at TED 2014 via telepresence robot about electronic spying

March 18, 2014

TED | Appearing by telepresence robot on March 18, 2014, Edward Snowden speaks at TED 2014 about surveillance and internet freedom in his talk titled “Here’s how we take back the internet.”

The right to data privacy, he suggests, is not a partisan issue, but requires a fundamental rethink of the role of the internet in our lives — and the laws that protect it. “Your rights matter,” he say, “because you never know when you’re going to need them.” Chris Anderson interviews, with special guest Tim Berners-Lee.

In 2013 Edward Snowden leaked thousands of classified American National Security Agency documents, sparking a global conversation about citizens’ rights to privacy on the internet.
