Dear Josephine, notice that this is a political question and not a legal 
one, my point, and notice, thats a reality, that you are without doubt 
not any cultural heritage. Neither any similar work. You would do 
net.art etc a big favour to realise that there are bigger problems in 
the world.

Lets concentrate on the application of the UNESCO treaties that we 
allready have.  UK, the USA etc..

Be carefull with ideas like "internet access is a human right" and so 
on, you can make your effords very easily very ridiculous.

Good luck,
