Dude... congress already voted on this. It didn't pass. The net will stay neutral.

Wow, I've heard of bad ideas but this one really sucks.
How do they expect this to work? There's always going to be at least one phone company who won't take control, and they will get MORE profits than the ones that do take control. Who wants to pay to go on the net? I'd have to pay like, $1 to get on IAB. People aren't going to pay.

My favorite proponent of net neutrality is named Leslie Hall. For an unforgettable experience look up her name in Youtube. Of course, you might not be able to un-see whatever you see there - don't say you were never warned LOL.

think about it, they control the means of transportation for the information, not the actual content itself. they could decide to put restrictions on the kind of information sent. "ooh this website's content is not to our liking...! we will not let this go through our digital transportation system! because we control the connection!...."

this could start to suck bigtime real soon...

I will become a renegade crusader against corporate america if this ever happens. Ill just pick up my roots and become a nomadic entity hellbent on the distruction of the corporate world, gaining supporters in my cause throughout the US.


Thats just me though.

There is an entire website that supports the video here. http://savetheinternet.com/

You can sign petitions there, and send letters and e-mails directly to congress in order to save the internet as we know it. I've been going there and doing so for a couple years now. I even look at that topic when it comes to who I plan to vote for.

The Australian government just released an internet filter. It's an opt out rather than opt in scheme that more people would speak out against if they knew it was happening/understood the consequences. IMO this is the sort of thing that should be handled privately.

I am glad someone made a video about this!

However, I'm suprised they didn't touch on government censorship/filtering. The potential of this is bleedingly obvious and already happening, the great firewall of China, Pakistan blocking You Tube, bloggers being arrested ect.

Though if the internet is really 'based in reality' then I think we're all screwed lol.

The Internet itself isn't something that can be taken over, but a city's access to the Internet IS something that can be taken over. Look at China and Korea.

As for the argument that a group of hackers could set up their own network, that is true. But how would you know about that hacker's network? I know how to call AT&T or Verizon...but I don't know the number to H4xX0Rz's internet server in Los Angeles. How many of you here know how to use IRCs? Hackers and other independents will always be a resource, but there're only a few people who will be able to take advantage of that resource.

The tough part about this kind of fight, is that these are the kinds of laws that get passed one year, but don't get enforced until the next year. So by the time people realize what happened and get pissed off, it's too late to argue with the legislature.

Does 'if you can't beat them, join them' apply here?

If net neutrality dies then capitalism will die with it. The world will become fed up of being controled through big corporations who keeps pushing everyone else who dont work for them aside for their own benefits.

Unless some huge socio-economic changes occur in America it is only a matter of time before the Internet is reigned in and turned into an efficient tool for spreading consumer propaganda. Spreading awareness and information are the best ways to sow the seeds of change. Thank you for this video.

This has got me a bit paranoid, but It'll be interesting to see how everything unfolds.

I never knew that this was happening,

but the video musta taken forvever to produce, must of been a school project or something

but it was really long

ON THE SUBJECT OF THE VIDEO ITSELF

i highly doubt that the internet will actually turn into a one way media
television and radio and newspaper all did because people didnt have the money or acsess likwe people do today,
with a team of hacker and tech geeks wthey could set up there own network

it just probably wont happen
