From Daily Kos:
"The House Judiciary Committee will mark up H.R. 5417, Sensenbrenner's and Conyers' Internet Freedom and Nondiscrimination Act of 2006, tomorrow. This is a remarkably good example of bipartisan legislation that preserves the concept of net neutrality."
Important information on the flip side...
The "Internet Freedom and Nondiscrimination Act" will give certainty to entrepreneurs, investors, and others who seek to deliver innovative ideas to market that they may do so without fearing discrimination. Specifically, this bill would amend the Clayton Act to require that network providers: 1) interconnect with the facilities of other network providers on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis; 2) operate their network in a reasonable and nondiscriminatory manner such that non-affiliated providers of content, services and applications have an equal opportunity to reach consumers; and 3) refrain from interfering with users' ability to choose the lawful content, services and applications they want to use.
"Urge them to support the bipartisan Sensenbrenner-Conyers Net Neutrality bill without amendment. The legislation as it stands is great"
Mel Watt sits on this committee, and he needs to hear from all concerned North Carolinians. If the Telecoms are allowed to have their way, we'll have a multi-tiered system that will restrict the free flow of information.
