R.E.M. Joins Net Neutrality Debate

Posted by Voiponder Reporter on May 17, 2006

The band R.E.M. has joined a broadening coalition of people demanding that Congress pass a law to protect network neutrality.

R.E.M. is among a group of artists and musicians who have created their own petition requesting legislation they say would ensure that the Internet would remain a level playing field. More than 650,000 people have signed a petition supporting the legislation, while telecommunications companies push for a measure that would leave control in the hands of the Federal Communications Commission.
