Netroots Nation Panel on Internet Freedom

Everyone who uses the Web for social networking, political action and entertainment should be concerned that the major telecommunications companies wish to get their grubby hands on the reins of the Internet so they can start gouging consumers more than they already do. Having a free and open Internet is essential for grassroots political activists who use the blogosphere to express alternative points of view shut out of the mainstream media. Last weekend’s Netroots Nation conference featured a panel on net neutrality, also known as Internet Freedom. The panel, called Protecting Rights in the Digital Realm, included Amalia Deloney, Grassroots Policy Director for the Center for Media Justice; Andy Bloch of the Poker Players Alliance; and James Rucker, co-founder of ColorofChange.org.
