Rousseff ratified a bill guaranteeing Internet privacy and enshrining access to the Web during the conference. The legislation, which was passed by the Senate late Tuesday, puts limits on the metadata that can be collected from Internet users in Brazil. It also makes Internet service providers not liable for content published by their users and requires them to comply with court orders to remove offensive material. (AP Photo/Andre Penner)
