Ellison, Walz Cosponsor Net Neutrality Bill

Posted by Phoenix Woman on May 20, 2008

From Minnesota Monitor:

A bill co-sponsored by Minnesota DFL Reps. Keith Ellison and Tim Walz aims to keep the Internet a level playing field for all users and charge the Federal Communications Commission with ensuring that telecoms do not offer content based on how much a company pays them to display their content.

Introduced by Reps. Edward Markey, D-Mass., and Charles Pickering, R-Miss., the Internet Freedom Preservation Act of 2008 would bar “unreasonable discriminatory favoritism for, or degradation of, content by network operators based upon its source, ownership, or destination on the Internet.”

A useful video explanation of Net Neutrality can be found here.
