Stop the Internet 'Kill-Switch' Bill
More Info at:
The freedom of information we see on the internet is pure democracy, or at least as close as we have come to a pure form of democracy. Information is available to all, rich or poor. It is written by people, for people - think of Wikipedia and Project Gutenberg and Source-Forge and WikiLeaks. These commons-based projects rely on the absence of heavy regulation and restriction. If any single individual has the power to stop all of this, with his finger hovering over the kill-switch, then we can kiss this freedom goodbye.
This petition takes aim at the 'Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010' or the Kill-Switch bill. If you enjoy using the internet without Big Brother leaning over your shoulder, sign this petition. If you value free expression without any form of coercion, sign this petition. If you want to keep the internet out of the hands of Joe Lieberman and Jay Rockefeller, sign this petition. Too much is at stake for us to look away this time, so exercise your right to free speech will you still can and help us keep the internet free from autocracy.
