On June 16th-17th 2012 the Open Internet of Things Assembly was held in London featuring a range of talks and workshops to collaborate and share visions for what an “Open Internet of Things” would look like.

Internet of Things “Bill of Rights”:
Pachube published this attempt at a Bill of Rights for the Internet of Things as a starting point and the event is a continuation and expansion of that idea.
- People own the data they (or their “things’) create.
- People own the data someone else creates about them.
- People have the right to access data gathered from public space.
- People have the right to access their data in full resolution in real-time.
- People have the right to access their data in a standard format.
- People have the right to delete or backup their data.
- People have the right to use and share their data however they want.
- People have the right to keep their data private.
Version 1.5: Google Group’s Working Doucument
We want to build a trust network in which citizens, developers, businesses and cities can contribute to a sustainable data future via an open data delivery and discoverability framework.
- We believe that data generated from public space (not governed by other statutes) should be made available for use.
- We believe that customers enter relationships with vendors as independent actors and data collected for/from/about them is available for their use, with a right of action.
This approach must be based on principles that support the efficient exchange of timely and accurate information and the protection of choice and privacy:
- Accessibility: We will publish data in an industry standard format
- Timeliness: We will release data in real-time and at full resolution
- Privacy: We will not distribute data that contains PII (personally identifiable information) unless explicitly permitted
- Control: We will allow the deleting and exporting of all data stored by a user
- Licensing: Users may explicitly grant legal permission for use and sharing of their data on a gradient from private to public domain
