Accept No Substitute for Real Net Neutrality
After more than a year of waffling on Net Neutrality, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski just announced plans to issue weak regulations that give just about everything to giant phone and cable companies, and leave Internet users with almost nothing.
President Obama promised to take a "back seat to no one" in his commitment to Net Neutrality. He appointed Chairman Julius Genachowski to head the FCC and get the job done.
We still have time to fix Chairman Genachowski's toothless rule before it goes to a vote on Dec. 21. Send this letter to FCC Commissioners -- and Net Neutrality champions -- Michael Copps and Mignon Clyburn. They still have the power to save the Internet before it's too late.

Chairman Genachowski’s proposed open Internet rules don’t meet any acceptable standard of real Net Neutrality. Unless they’re changed significantly, we urge you not to support them when you vote on Dec. 21.
First, the rules need to extend full Net Neutrality protections to both wired and wireless Internet users.
Second, they must have stronger language to prohibit “paid prioritization” schemes, which give phone and cable companies the power to pick winners and losers on the Internet.
Third, they must close massive loopholes for “specialized services” that allow industry to discriminate unfairly online.
Finally, they must ensure that Net Neutrality rests on a secure legal foundation that can withstand a court challenge.
Please continue to stand with me for real Net Neutrality protections and fix these rules before you vote.
