not just there, other countries are also encountering issues.

other countries do face these problems too, especially on conservative societies.

You are absolutely right, Natalie, and no one would ever suggest otherwise. While this news story focuses on the Nederlands, net neutrality is an issue of critical importance to the people of North America. Please accept my tenderest apology if somehow the posting of this story implied any disrespect. It was purely unintentional. Corporate domination of everything from governments to the internet is a world problem for all of humanity. I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

We had quite a large online campaign against Congress passing SOPA & PIPA---which we have done successfully so far. And there was worldwide online participation when Europe tried to push their internet-freedom-crushing laws. The EFF is one group that has organized the protests. Members of Congress seem to be taking turns introducing these internet-freedom-crushing bills--but the word is getting out, with the help of social networking; and every time they introduce a new one, we take successful action. The sneakiest thing done is when Congress adds it as an amendment to another bill that has absolutely nothing to do with the internet...especially if it's something that the majority was passed.
