Net Neutrality Betrayal

In News on December 3, 2010 at 7:22 pm

Julius Genachowski sells out

After more than a year of waffling on Net Neutrality, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski just announced plans to issue weak regulations that give just about everything to giant phone and cable companies, and leave Internet users with almost nothing.

Genachowski calls his plan Net Neutrality. But it’s fake. It doesn’t live up to President Obama’s pledge to create lasting and enforceable Net Neutrality protections or to Genachowski’s own promises to deliver for the president.

This is a huge betrayal. But we still have time to fix Genachowski’s toothless rule before it goes to a vote on Dec. 21.  Click here to automatically send the letter below to the FCC:  “Accept Nothing Less than Real Net Neutrality.”

In a direct response to the domain seizures by US authorities during the last few days, a group of established enthusiasts have started working on a DNS system that can’t be touched by any governmental institution.

Ironically, considering the seizure of the Torrent-Finder meta-search engine domain, the new DNS system will be partly powered by BitTorrent.  Learn more.

Hollywood blacklist

In News on November 27, 2010 at 5:45 pm
Peter Eckersley, a technologist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, wrote earlier this week that…
“The bill will create a 1950-style Hollywood blacklist with the government deciding which Web sites are legitimate or not. The federal government will be forced “into the swamp of trying to decide which websites should be blacklisted and which ones shouldn’t,” Eckersley said. “And they’re going to discover that the line between copyright infringement and free political speech can be awfully murky.”
