If you’re not familiar with the title of this post, you should do some reading-up.
Net neutrality (also network neutrality or Internet neutrality) is the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, and modes of communication.
Or as explained by Juice RapNews:
Os as John Oliver puts it: “Preventing Cable Company Fuckery”
As the media reported, the European parliament has voted to protect the net neutrality in the EU.
So is it over?
For now, it seems we’ve won a little battle… But as long as people can gain giant amounts of money by destroying it, net neutrality will always be in danger.
It is with scared eyes I look up on to the US… they might push their (and our) future in the wrong way.
Let us hope there will be an equal to Amelia Anderdotter to lobby for the sake of the internet as we know it!!! (She lost her seat in the EU after the 2014 elections) 🙁
