Yeah, this sucks. It's not going to do anything but make things more expensive for the end user. Get ready for it.

Quoted from Wickerman2:

The Federal Communications Commission has ordered net neutrality to end on April 23

Now we just get to sit back and wait for the inevitable, telecom-written "net neutrality" law to be introduced in congress that doesn't actually address any of the key issues, but also keeps states from doing so.

Or the outcome of the court cases, whichever comes first.

Quoted from Wickerman2:

a "vote of disapproval" under the Congressional review Act which could nullify Pai's nonsense.

disapproval PASSED Senate, heads to House where it looks a little rougher...call your House member.

From my state Senator:

Dear Friend,

It's official - we've passed our bill in the Senate to save net neutrality!

So what does this mean? It means that we are one step closer to making sure the internet remains free and open to all. And it means we are one step closer to making sure that internet service providers can't block, slow down, or discriminate against content online. This is a fundamental issue of providing consumers with more choice and control.

Watch my video to hear about today's big vote >> https://www.facebook.com/SenatorKaine/videos/1665715193477567/

In 2015, the Obama Administration put net neutrality rules in place to protect consumers. This past December, the Trump Administration took them away to protect big internet service providers. We're fighting back to stand with consumers. It's as simple as that.

We worked hard for this vote, and now that our bill has passed, we need the House to swiftly take it up so we can reverse the Trump Administration's gutting of net neutrality protections. If we don't act now, the FCC could end net neutrality in less than one month, which could have a big negative impact on your experience on the web. So if you want to keep the internet free and open for all, continue making your voices heard so we can keep up the momentum and get this bill across the finish line.

Sincerely,

Senator Tim Kaine

Looks look the EU just voted against memes and is implementing a link tax. Allong with censorship machines.

Quoted from chad:

is implementing a link tax

A what? Ah:
"Article 11 (a.k.a. link tax) would force anyone using snippets of journalistic online content to get a license from the publisher first — essentially outlawing current business models of most aggregators and news apps. " -- https://thenextweb.com/eu/2018/06/20/eu-votes-for-censorship-machines-and-link-tax-what-now/

So; technically - I just violated that rule. That's said - I don't see this as enforceable until the courts make a judgement in favor of the "tax"

See the whole thing stupid tbh.
