It Gets Even Crazier: Fight The AT&T/Comcast "Three Strikes" Censorship Deal
This time the motion picture association of America and the recording industry association of America both want to team up with Internet service providers 2 give 3 strike notices to it's customers you know the ones who pay our bills to get Internet access!!I urge my fellow sodaheads and anyone on the Internet to have a look at this and fight back sign the petition.Don't forget our first amendment rights are being violated.
Completely over the top, even compared to everything else we're up
against: Entertainment industry sources are leaking that they've
convinced Internet service providers to start restricting people's web
access. If you're accused of downloading or streaming three files
they'll consider messing with your Internet connection -- and maybe even decide what sites you're allowed to visit.
The MPAA and RIAA have convinced companies like Comcast, AT&T;,
and others to voluntarily create a "Three Strikes" policy -- yes, that's
really what they are calling it. CNET reports that your
Internet service provider will respond to online file sharing with
censorship tools like:
- "Throttling down" your Internet bandwidth and speed;
- Limiting your access to the Web;
- Controlling what websites you are allowed to visit;
- And requiring you to attend pirate school to be educated on copyright law.
Will you act now to fight this new ridiculous proposal?
If you sign the petition at right, we'll automatically generate an
email under your name and address to the lobbyists for Comcast and
AT&T; -- including former Republican senators Trent Lott and John
Breaux -- containing this language:
NOTE TO AT&T; AND COMCAST:
Sources are reporting that you are preparing to implement a "Three
Strikes" proposal to restrict users' Internet access. As a customer who
cares deeply about Internet freedom I urge you to oppose Internet
censorship and reject this proposal.
