World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee on Monday unveiled a “Contract for the Web” to halt “misuse” by governments, companies and individuals, bringing several capitals and tech titans like Google aboard.

“If we don’t act now — and act together — to prevent the web being misused by those who want to exploit, divide and undermine, we are at risk of squandering” its potential for good, Berners-Lee said in a statement from his World Wide Web Foundation.

Credited with laying the groundwork for the web — the universe of multimedia webpages accessible via the internet — in 1989, the computer scientist has since last year been developing the so-called Contract for the Web.
