Battle for the net

We're in the battle for the net.

Hey Scribers,


Today, September 10th, I am here to express my support to our american friends. I Steve Scriber, and the Scribe team, support the net neutrality and we are in the Battle 


What is Net Neutrality?


Net neutrality is the First "law" of the Internet. It’s the fundamental principle that makes the net a level playing field where everyone has a voice. It’s the secret ingredient that makes the Internet so delicious, fun, and weird.


Basically It preserves our right to communicate freely online.


Net Neutrality means that the telecom companies must provide us with open networks — and should not block or discriminate against any applications or content that ride over those networks. 


Net Neutrality is what enables the Internet to be such a hotbed for innovation.


This is what allows companies like Facebook, Twitter and Scribe arise from "nothing" every day, bringing innovation and a new vision for the world. 


Simply, without Net Neutrality, startups and small business will be subject to discrimination based on a pay-to-play Internet, and startups like us will disappear.



What are we fighting against?


On May 15, 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed rules that would permit rampant discrimination online, undermining Net Neutrality. The FCC’s proposal would be a huge boon for the cable companies and would undermine the Internet as we know it.


Who the FUCK is against net neutrality?


Mostly, all the cable companies in USA. 


With this new law cable giants like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon would be able to create a two-tiered Internet, with slow lanes (for most of us) and fast lanes (for wealthy corporations that are willing pay fees in exchange for fast service).


Threat to Democracy


When corporations have the power to choose what we can and can’t see on the Internet, we lose one of the basic underpinnings of a free society: free access to information.
