    Default If You Live in Europe, Specifically Sweden

    I have no idea what this is, but it sounds important. If you live there, you probably already know whatever it is, but I figured I'd share.

    Do you know what this is? If not, I'm going to make something up.

    Internet access is not conditional

    Everyone who owns a website has an interest in defending the free use of Internet... so has everyone who uses Google or Skype... everyone who expresses their opinions freely, does research of any kind, whether for personal health problems or academic study ... everyone who shops online...who dates online...socialises online... listens to music...watches video...

    The internet as we know it is at risk because of proposed new EU rules going through end of April. Under the proposed new rules, broadband providers will be legally able to limit the number of websites you can look
    at, and to tell you whether or not you are allowed to use particular services. It will be dressed up as ‘new consumer options' which people can choose from. People will be offered TV-like packages - with a limited
    number of options for you to access.

    It means that the Internet will be packaged up and your ability to access and to put up content could be severely restricted. It will create boxes of Internet accessibility, which don't fit with the way we use it today. This is because internet is now permitting exchanges between persons which cannot be controlled or "facilitated" by any middlemen (the state or a corporation) and this possibility improves the citizen's life but force the industry to lose power and control. that's why they are pushing governments to act those changes.

    The excuse is to control the flow of music, films and entertainment content against the alleged piracy by downloading for free, using P2P file-sharing. However, the real victims of this plan will be all Internet users and the democratic and independent access to information, culture goods.

    Think about how you use the Internet! What would it mean to you if free access to the Internet was taken away?
    These days, the Internet is about life and freedom. It's about shopping, booking theatre tickets ... holidays, learning, job-seeking, banking, and trade. It's also about the fun things - dating, chatting, invitations, music, entertainment, joking and even a Second Life. It is a tool to express ourselves, to collaborate, innovate, share, stimulate new business ideas, reach new markets - thrive without middlemen..

    Just think - what's your web address? Unless people have that address in their "package" of regular websites - they won't be able to find you. That means they can't buy, or book, or register, or even view you online. Your business won't be able to find niche suppliers of goods - and compare prices. If you get any money at all from advertising on your site, it will diminish. Yes, Amazon and a select few will be OK, they will be the included in the package. But your advertising on Google or any other website, will be increasingly worthless. Skype could be blocked. (As it is in Germany in the use from iPhone, already). Small businesses could literally disappear, especially specialist, niche or artisan businesses.

    If we don't do something now - we could lose free and open use of the internet. Our freedom (of choice in information, market, culture, pleasure) will be curtailed. The EU proposals hold an enormous risk for our future. They are about to become Law - and will be virtually impossible to reverse. People (even the members of the European Parliament who are voting on it) don't really seem to understand the full implications and the legal changes are wrapped up in something called "Telecoms Package" which lulls people into thinking it is just about industry.

    However, in reality, hiding from public view, the amendments are about the way the Internet will operate in future! Text that expresses your rights to access and distribute content, services and applications, is being crossed out. And the text that is being brought in, says that broadband providers must inform you of any limitations, or restrictions to your broadband service. Alternative versions use the word ‘conditions' - and it is seriously being proposed that you will be told the conditions of use of Internet services. This is made to sound good - it is dressed up as ‘transparency' - except that of course it means that the broadband providerwill have the legal right restrict your access or impose conditions,otherwise why would they need tell you? If the Telecoms Package amendmentsare voted in, the changes will not be reversible.

    We all have a stake in the Internet! You need to act now to save it!
    What can you do about it?
    Tell the European Parliament to vote against conditional access to the Internet! Remind them that they need your vote in June and that internet still give us the tools to be watching and judging what they are doing! (link a la quadrature du net) You must know you are not alone: hundreds of organizations are working on that and thousands of people have already contact their parliamentarians about this issue.

    So, act now:
    1 - Email, write to or phone your MEP - follow this link to get theirdetails - a suggested template letter is attached. You can also use the following software that send the letter directly to all the parliamentarians. Believe, they will really receive it and they will really feel the pressure. You are welcome to personalize the letter and include information that will make MEPs wake up, take note and take appropriate action.

    2 - Forward this email to everyone you know so that they can take action.

    3 - Syndicate this page so that you keep been informed: disinformation is what they count on, we must be aware. Text for people to cut and paste to MEP: The coalition version needs to have instructions for people from each country. coalition members need to get a translated version online in their own languages and link to the LQ site for their own MEPs.

    Suggest you indicate:


    Here are the MEPs who are important in the process.
    Here are the MEPs from [your country] [or list each country of the coalition] .

    This is suggested letter / email to send to your MEP. Personalise this email to include your own Internet use in your personal and business life. Change the sentence in red to personalise the email and tell the MEP how you individually use the Internet or just take it off.
    tl;dr: the fuckers are trying to control our internets.

    Trying to control my Internets? Oh hell no!

    There is going to be mailes sent to my elected reprisentatives, who I on closer thought didn't elect because there were still 5 more months until I could vote during the last election to the EU. But they're gonna get mailed nonetheless and I will demand that they do all they can to keep my internet in it's state of anarchy and the prime advisor on ways to conduct domestic terrorism.

    This is why I'm gonna be voting for the pirateparty, I need some anti lobbyists to get things done in the EU. Damn dirty fucking media lobbyists, if they don't stop I'm soon gonna look up some of those domestic terrorism tips and burn them out of Europe.

    It's bad.

    Anyway, you should keep in mind, that this is the parliament vote indeed. If something is accepted by the parliament, it goes on to the commission where the actual changes are made.

    For example: There are rules which have been accepted by the parliament in 1997 and still not solved by the commission.

    However, the amendment this thread is about sucks ass and I truly hope it will never even pass the parliament stage.

    Indeed, even so, what asshole(s) thought of this in the first place?

    True.

    I was actually about to add to the post you quoted, that the thought of people who honestly understand what the amendmend stands for and want it to pass is beyond me.
