Campaign: The Open Internet & the Freedom of Speech

Leave our freedom of speech alone!

I am very concerned about the "lawful content" clause in the net neutrality rules. It causes a situation where every internet provider and website must snoop on every single bit of communication to make sure it is legal. The writers of the rule have good intentions, but the result of having that clause in there will have a chilling effect on the internet that has never happened before. Today, a judge actually made ...more »
