AT&T and Comcast about to agree to Internet censorship deal

Friends-

Completely over the top, even compared to everything else we're up against: Entertainment industry sources are leaking that they've convinced Internet service providers to start restricting people's web access. If you're accused of downloading or streaming three files they'll consider messing with your Internet connection -- and maybe even decide what sites you're allowed to visit.

Will you help fight the proposal?  Just click here to email AT&T and Comcast:

The MPAA and RIAA have convinced companies like Comcast, AT&T, and others to voluntarily create a "Three Strikes" policy -- yes, that's really what they are calling it. CNET reports that your Internet service provider will respond to online file sharing with censorship tools like:

   * "Throttling down" your internet bandwidth and speed;

   * Limiting your access to the Web;

   * Controlling what websites you are allowed to visit;

   * And requiring you to attend pirate school to be educated on copyright law.

Will you act now to fight this new ridiculous proposal.  Just click here to email AT&T and Comcast to urge them not to censor the Internet:
