Internet freedom -- the freedom to exchange thought, opinion, expression, and association to meet political, social, education, or religious objectives -- should not be restricted for law-abiding citizens in the United States or anywhere in the world.

I should sue John McCain. Three and a half years ago, writing about Net Neutrality, the attempt to guarantee the Internet stays free and open, I said that it was a slam-dunk issue being hampered by a lousy name -- one that evokes a tennis match in Switzerland or basketball players who don't choose sides. And I suggested some alternatives, including The Fast, Downloadable Porn Act and The Internet Freedom Act. Cut to last week, when McCain, the number one recipient of telecom campaign cash in Congress, introduced a bill that would effectively kill Net Neutrality. The name of his bill? The Internet Freedom Act! Paging George Orwell! War is Peace, Ignorance is Strength, and Freedom is... an Internet controlled by AT&T and Verizon. We can't let that happen. Support Net Neutrality. Let's start by giving it a better name.
