Default A Note to Google Users on Net Neutrality, another the congress wants to take

http://www.google.com/help/netneutrality.html

A Note to Google Users on Net Neutrality:

The Internet as we know it is facing a serious threat. There's a debate heating up in Washington, DC on something called "net neutrality" – and it's a debate that's so important Google is asking you to get involved. We're asking you to take action to protect Internet freedom.

In the next few days, the House of Representatives is going to vote on a bill that would fundamentally alter the Internet. That bill, and one that may come up for a key vote in the Senate in the next few weeks, would give the big phone and cable companies the power to pick and choose what you will be able to see and do on the Internet.

Today the Internet is an information highway where anybody – no matter how large or small, how traditional or unconventional – has equal access. But the phone and cable monopolies, who control almost all Internet access, want the power to choose who gets access to high-speed lanes and whose content gets seen first and fastest. They want to build a two-tiered system and block the on-ramps for those who can't pay.

Creativity, innovation and a free and open marketplace are all at stake in this fight. Please call your representative (202-224-3121) and let your voice be heard.

Thanks for your time, your concern and your support.

Eric Schmidt

Latest News

Update 6/8/06: For those who are interested in the legislative nuts-and-bolts, we support amending the House bill through the Markey-Boucher-Eshoo-Inslee Amendment to preserve network neutrality, which would add meaningful net neutrality provisions to H.R. 5252 [PDF], the Communications Opportunity, Promotion, and Enhancement (COPE) Act. We believe anything less than this amendment would be a loss for freedom and innovation on the Internet.

CNN Covered this and the ignorant govermant is winning once again. Though that was a few weeks ago I'm not entirely sure where the bill is now I've been keeping a close eye on other bills. This deserves a good bump.
