Submission + - Musicians Fight For Net Neutrality

Erin Lenseth writes: "Musicians are now fighting for net neutrality,fearing that certain internet providers will soon charge a fee to those who want their websites to have faster loading times. The Rock the Net Campaign, an advocacy group composed of lesser known artists, is now being backed by the Future of Music Coaliation, which is supported by the likes of R.E.M. This begs the question- are ISPs going too far in their quest to generate more profit?"

"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth. -- Alfred North Whitehead
