Declaration of Internet Freedom

This is a great idea and hope there is enough support for it. The big corporations love controlling the internet and they lobby hard for it.

It’s no secret that various parts of the internet have been under attack for some time. Traditional media companies respond with terror at the thought of losing even more business to piracy (thoughit’s questionable just how much they’re actually hurting). Cable internet providers want the right to control what speeds you’re allowed to access what sites at. And the U.S. government, meanwhile, wants to help these companies out by making streaming copyrighted content punishable by up to five years in prison.
