    What does that mean? “Safeguard consumer rights”. What gets lost whenever anyone says “net neutrality” is that you don’t want the owners of the pipes (ISP’s) to allow their content to be delivered at a higher quality (or at all) when compared to an alternative. Comcast, Verizon, Time Warner, they are ISPs, but they also want to generate content. They offer TV and phone service in addition to Internet access. I want to make sure I can still use Skype or watch Hulu even though one of these companies may offer a competing product at an extra cost.

    According to Open Secrets, Markeys 2nd & 3rd Top Campaign Contributors for ‘09 & ’10 are Time Warner & Comcast. And His 3rd & 5th Contributors in ’07 & ’08. Hmmm….he is cheap also.

    Time Warner is also in on the Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement The Act would require ISPs to police user generated content, to cut off Internet access for copyright violators & to remove content thats accused of copyright violation w/o any proof of actual violation! It also completely prohibits DRM workarounds even for archiving or retrieving one’s own work

    Only 42 persons such as reps of Google Intel Verizon Time Warner Sony News Corp eBay the MPAA and the RIAA were given access to the document under nondisclosure agreements The politicians involved in creating the it are heavily funded by entertainment media and IP corporations such as Sony Time Warner News Corp & Disney

    Internet users around the world are headed for a new regime of IP enforcement a culture of invasive searches minimal privacy guilt until innocence is proven and measures that would kill our normative behaviors of file-sharing free software media downloading creative remixing and even certain civil liberties

    I believe this bill needs more bite. ISPs should not be allowed to hide behind the DMCA safe harbors, and should be actively policing their networks for illegal content. Piracy is a scourge and can be characterized as both the Bull in the China shop AND a dirty little secret that does not get enough press.

    Quality of Service (QoS, tiering) and Municipal providers should be considered. Our “dumb” network needs to get “smart”.

    If ISPs form an oligopoly as it is over the industry of providing bandwidth, why should we give them a similar oligopoly over internet content? MONOPOLIES AND OLIGOPOLIES ARE NOT GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY, AS THEY REDUCE INNOVATION, COMPETITION, AND CAUSE PRICES TO RISE. I know you guys like to show of how conservative you are and like to throw around words like “free market” and “big government” but the market is anything but free when dominated by a very small number of corporations. Monopolies and oligopolies kill freedom of trade just as easily as does oppressive government. So, whatever dude, you like exploitation and greed in a system that favors the transfer of wealth…from the poor to the rich. FUCK YOU

    Don’t get yourself worked up to much man. Keep fighting the good fight.

    I support Net Neutrality, by guaranteeing freedom of content all users benefit. We are already limited in internet speed by a tiered system created by corporations, we don’t need these same companies limiting our content also.
