It Gets Even Crazier: Fight The AT&T/Comcast "Three Strikes" Censorship Deal
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 Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott -- 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.
Just sign on at right and we'll send an email to the head honchos at AT&T and Comcast.
