I am extremely disappointed that the House voted for the COPE Act yesterday without any essential net neutrality protection. By blocking the Markey Amendment, the Republican Congress has allowed 'the pipes' to control content in a way that goes directly against the level playing field and innovative spirit created by the Internet. Because no net neutrality provisions were adopted, the broadband duopolies and monopolies will be able to turn the Internet into the equivalent of cable television. I hope the U.S. Senate will stand up for freedom and, unlike the House, insist on net neutrality to save the Internet as we know it.
