Dear Mark,

Comcast Violates Net Neutrality. We Can Stop Them.

File Your Own FCC Complaint

Comcast has given us a glimpse of a world without Net Neutrality, and it’s a chilling sight.

An investigation by the Associated Press caught the cable giant secretly inspecting online communications and crippling users’ ability to share information with one another.

This is a gross violation of Net Neutrality — the longstanding principle that ensures a free and open Internet.

Tell the FCC: Save the Free and Open Internet

Today, Free Press filed a legal complaint demanding that the FCC take action to protect the free flow of information on the Internet. By joining our complaint, you can help stop Comcast and other gatekeepers.
The future of the Internet is far more than Web sites and e-mail. People are now using new peer-to-peer technologies to upload and share videos, photographs and music. They are innovating without permission from Internet gatekeepers.

Comcast is trying to shut down these innovations and treat the Internet like cable TV — where they get to pick the channels you can watch. They’re stifling the free exchange of ideas that makes the Internet so revolutionary.

Tell the FCC: Stop Comcast and Other Gatekeepers

You’re the only person who should decide where you go, what you do, and whom you connect with on the Web. Net Neutrality protects your right to choose.

Phone and cable lobbyists have called Net Neutrality “a solution in search of a problem.” Well, here’s the problem. In the past three months, incidents of censorship and blocking by Verizon, AT&T and now Comcast have made headlines around the world. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

We stopped these gatekeepers in 2006. We can stop them for good by taking action right now. It’s time to restore Net Neutrality once and for all.

Thank you,
Timothy Karr
