thatlittlewecando writes "The justice department has started an investigation into Comcast and other cable companies, to see if they have violated antitrust laws by interfering with viewers ability to view video from independent providers including Netflix and Hulu. This probe could be the beginning of a larger push to rein in the cable companies. Below is the text of a petition I created through SignOn.org. If you want to sign it, go here We want a free internet where viewers can see the exact content they choose, in a timely manner, either commercial-free via pay-per-view or otherwise, without cable companies acting as intermediaries or creating road-blocks to viewers. We further would like to see an end to network monopolies of event coverage that disadvantages those who prefer an internet interface. Therefore we applaud the justice department’s probe of Comcast and others, and would like to see the probe broadened to all instances of cable interference with internet TV. "
