Net Neutrality Update

Just got this email from Tim Karr of Free Press:

Here’s the latest from the Senate Commerce Committee, where a “mark-up” on several amendments to Senator Stevens’ Telecom Act began today at 10 a.m.: The Snowe-Dorgan Net Neutrality amendment will probably come before the Committee by mid-to-late afternoon. If successfully passed, the amendment would put Net Neutrality language into the massive Telecommunications Act. This is critical.
If your (or your readers’/members’) Senators sit on the committee, they need to hear from you immediately. Ask them to support the Snowe-Dorgan Net Neutrality amendment to the larger Telecom Act (S. 2686).
Here are the members of the committee who have not taken a strong position in favor of Internet freedom and for the Snowe-Dorgan Amendment. Please urge your members to call them now:

P.S. Here are some recent articles and videos in support of SavetheInternet and Net Neutrality:
An Internet for the Few or the Many? Michael Copps has a message for the technology industry when it comes to Net neutrality: Get involved.CNet News.com
Don’t Let the Service Providers Discriminate on the Internet Two of the Internet’s top business innovators made a case for Net Neutrality today in an op-ed written for the San Jose Mercury News. “Reinstating the Internet’s core principle of net neutrality won’t stand in the way of innovation,” write John Doerr and Reed Hastings. “Indeed, net neutrality has, until recently, been the very foundation of Internet innovation.”San Jose Mercury News
Protecting Net Neutrality from the Neutricidal Telcos For AT&T and Verizon to be screaming for the protection of the free market against Net Neutrality is “sheer hypocrisy,” writes Internet guru Cory Doctorow. “They themselves are creatures of government regulation, basing their business on government-granted extraordinary privileges.”Information Week
No Tolls on the Internet Only a Congress besieged by high-priced telecom lobbyists could possibly consider handing the Internet over to the handful of cable and telephone companies that control online access for 98 percent of the broadband market.Washington Post

    Thanks for posting these updates. It’s amazing, and sad, how little coverage the media is giving this issue. However, I suppose that Britney’s “bump” warrants more air time. Sheesh @ programming execs.
