Anti-Net Neutrality - Corporate scamjob

Looks like big business is trying to push back against the "net neutrality" campaign. This link is to a piece of propoganda about net neutrality:

DontRegulate.org

The spin is atrocious. It argues that companies like Google and Microsoft will make the consumer pay for the upgrades to service if net neutrality is enforced (currently the ISPs are the ones who are forcing us to pay for it). It claims that Microsoft and Google will get rich if net neutraility is enforced (as if AT&T and Verizon are building a faster pipeline out of altruistic motives). It says that net neutrality would force the government to come up with "volumes" on how the net should be run (no, we just want the law that used to apply to the internet to be reapplied; it was the law that says that a phone company can't refuse any other phone company's call provision), and it points out that net neutrality advocates can only site two times that sites have been blocked (that is because up to this point it would have been illegal, but now it's up for vote, dumbass).

When you read something ask "who benefits from this?" It's as simple as that. So watch that crap-fest video, then follow the link to the parent site and check out the corporate sponsors... or follow this link below.

Hands Off

Notice how many corporations that are also ISPs are there... see AT&T? See Verizon? Who benefits? The rat-bastards do.
