The FCC is a week away from deciding to kill net neutrality by allowing ISPs to create fast lanes for favored companies and slow lanes for everyone else.

International Day Against DRM is this Tuesday, May 6th. We have endorsed this day of action and urge you to support it as well. So called Digital Rights Management or DRM technologies have crept out of music (where they are being abandoned) into movies and e-books. They are even in cars and coffee makers. If we don't stand up, DRM will be in the next version of HTML, potentially lock down the Internet. As writer Cory Doctorow noted with DRM in e-books: Anytime someone puts a lock on somet...
