The Web is legal today

18 years ago today CERN made the code for the web public domain.

"CERN’s decision to make the Web foundations and protocols available on a royalty free basis, and without additional impediments, was crucial to the Web’s existence. Without this commitment, the enormous individual and corporate investment in Web technology simply would never have happened, and we wouldn’t have the Web today." -Tim Berners-Lee, Director, WWW Consortium
