Internet freedom has unlocked individual self-empowerment, entrepreneurialism, creativity, innovation, and the creation of markets in ways never before imagined in human history.
Yet massive new regulatory schemes to give the government more control over the Internet, including the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011 (CISPA), keep rearing their ugly heads in Congress.
These policies would gut privacy laws, stifle innovation, and allow Internet providers and websites to hand over personal data to ANY agency in the federal government.
And this December, the United Nations is meeting to come up with even MORE recommendations for international Internet regulations!
So today I want to join you in sending a loud and clear message to Congress: HANDS OFF OUR INTERNET!
And I will stand with C4L in opposing any attempt by government to tax, regulate, monitor, or control the Internet.
