I received this from Moveon.org, and then emailed it to pretty much everyone in my address book (as well as posting it to Facebook and Twitter)...but I'm posting it here, as well, because this really concerns me. Just the idea that the government could regulate the internet...no. So read the message from Moveon, and hopefully you'll agree with me and put your name to the petition. (And then share it with everyone YOU know, because this has to potential to affect every single one of us.)

Subject: Say NO to Internet Censorship

Hi,

This week Congress is debating whether to grant themselves the
power to turn off parts of the Internet. Fun sites you YouTube.
Informative sites like Wikipedia. Political sites like MoveOn.org.

If enacted, new laws would force Internet Service Providers to block
websites that any corporation suspects violates a copyright or suspects
doesn't monitor it's users' content close enough for copyrighted
materials. That means that any website, foreign or based in the U.S.,
could be wiped out on suspicion and made unavailable to everyone in the
world.

This week there will be a historic filibuster of the Internet Censorship
Act where the names of every person that signs a petition against Internet
censorship will be read. I added my name. Please add yours too.
