    On 12 July, we will be experiencing the most important protest in Internet history related to Net Neutrality. Internet brands like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Mozilla, FourSquare, Etsy, Reddit, Opera, PureVPN, CreativeCommons, Dropbox, DuckDuckGo, and more are taking part in this protest.

    The protest is lead and supported by prominent civil liberty groups including EFF, Battle For The Net, Fight For The Future, OpenMedia, and many others.

    On July 12, these brands will put banners and bars and show different messages, for example, buy premium subscription to access more content, or forced advertisements.

    The reason for going such length is because the First Comment on Ajit Pai appeal is going to be heard on 17th July and our support can provide basis for Congress & White House to pressure on Pai to reconsider his plan to end net neutrality.

    My question is how do you see this step and the protest? What's your stance on this protest? Will this have positive impact in the favor of net neutrality?

    Isn't here any person who is concerned for his Internet neutrality? I think either there is awareness lacking or people aren't just interested because it's really a big issue that cannot go unnoticed.

    I don't care. We already have a fascist government in Ukraine, which blocks something in internet every day.

    I missed this thread and of course I care. It's also a US problem for the most part, since Canada has a logical, pro-consumer regulatory body, etc.

    Also there's a difference between what a government blocks and what your ISP will block. Knowing them they'll probably mess with video streaming where China probably doesn't care as long as it doesn't run aground ideological stuff or whatever criteria they use to assess content.

    US definitely needs a clear and strict regulatory body. I found this on the web, it might be the future of pay per package.
