Introducing Our SWANsat

Magna Carta* for the Information Age


*[1] The “great charter” of English liberties, forced from King John by the English barons and sealed at Runnymede, June 15, 1215. [2] Any fundamental constitution or law guaranteeing rights and liberties; cf. Dictionary.com, "Magna Carta".


On 15 February 2010, SWANsat Holdings filed a Notice of Claim of Exemption based on provisions contained in the Republic of Germany's regulations concerning Section 58 exemptions for operations in never-before-assigned electromagnetic frequencies such as the W-band. Copies of the Notice of Claim of Exemption were simultaneously served on the ITU and other international and national regulatory agencies.

The SWANsat Magna Carta for the Information Age is a seminal statement and declaration concerning human rights and the Internet. It consists of a formal demarche and manifesto††, based on five separate authorities, that the SWANsat System's planned Networked Information Communication Technology System (NICT System) is exempt from landing rights and operational licenses on the grounds that access to Internet Portals and Information Freedom are both inalienable human rights, as defined by the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I.e., a formal appeal or statement presented to public officials or authorities by a private interest group; cf. Dictionary.com, "demarche".

††I.e. a public declaration of intentions, opinions, objectives, or motives, as one issued by a government, sovereign, or organization. Dictionary.com, "manifesto".
