Will Net Neutrality Survive?

Tue Jul 11, 2017, 9:00 PM by danlev:icondanlev:


The FCC Wants To Destroy It.


Battle For The Net - Tomations by falcont


Today, DeviantArt has joined hundreds of sites across the web to fight for net neutrality. July 12th is a coordinated day of grassroots efforts across the net to bring attention to the shadowy efforts of powerful cable and telecom industry forces to do away with net neutrality — a rule that protects open and equal access to the net for all publishers.

Without net neutrality rules that create an open and fair playing field for all users on the Internet, there will be economic censorship with the rich publishers paying Internet providers to be in the fast lanes with the rest of us throttled down.

WHY WE'RE FIGHTING

The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, extra fees and discrimination in favor of the rich publishers who can afford to pay for the fast lane

The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It's what makes it so vibrant and innovative—a place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas with a level playing field for all kinds of content. Without net neutrality, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider gets paid to put in front of you by powerful corporate media interests.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

  1. Send a letter to the FCC & Congress 

    It’s easy! BattleForTheNet has supplied a way to automatically reach the FCC and your representative in Congress. Use their messaging or write your own!

  2. Spread the word: Share a net neutrality deviation on social media and encourage your friends to join the protest at battleforthenet.com.

  3. Get the word out by sharing your net neutrality art using the #BattleForTheNet tag. Make a statement with your art and send it to the FCC and Congress.

  4. Educate yourself and your friends: Watch some of the great videos on the BattleForTheNet site or review this podcast from Mozilla.







PRIDE by Rumiiya


Every year, June is celebrated as LGBTQ+ Pride Month across the globe. We asked the DeviantArt community to contribute artwork for one of the six colors of the Pride flag.

Over 10,000 artists contributed art. A few weeks later, we created a Profile Pride flag made with some of the art you contributed, and we featured others in our Pride video as well as on DeviantArt’s social media channels.

Flag by danlev

We ran Pride live streams with TsaoShin (watch recording), SirWendigo (watch recording), and Laovaan (watch recording). 

We’re completely overwhelmed and heart-warmed to share that over 110,000 flags have been added to deviants profiles across the site — and each day, thousands more are added.


Based on suggestions we’ve received, a button has been added to the Pride flag Profile widget that lets you easily browse all entries that were submitted, showcasing all of the Pride artwork for months to come.

While June has ended, our pride is not. The profile flag is here to stay, and you can still add it to your Profile by pressing the “Edit Profile” button and adding the Pride widget.











F02 by danlev

DeviantArt is teaming up with Battle For The Net, the campaign to fight for net neutrality. We need weaponized artworks to drive home the message.


July 12th will be a day of coordinated grassroots efforts across the net to bring attention to the shadowy efforts of powerful cable industry forces to do away with net neutrality — a rule that protects open and equal access to the net by all publishers. We will join alongside sites like Reddit, Twitter, Amazon, Vimeo, Netflix, Soundcloud, and many others in activating our memberships to stand together for net neutrality.

We’re asking deviants to create art that other deviants and Internet warriors can share on July 12th. Your art may also be selected to be distributed far and wide by the official Battle For The Net campaign. Make your voice heard through your art!

The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, extra fees and discrimination in favor of the rich publishers who can afford to pay for the fast lane.

The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It's what makes it so vibrant and innovative—a place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas with a level playing field for all kinds of content. Without real, enforceable net neutrality rooted in the legal foundation known as Title II, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider gets paid to put in front of you by powerful corporate media interests.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

  1. Get inspired by visiting Battle For The Net to learn more about the initiative.

  2. Create an image that embodies the campaign for net neutrality—some examples have been included below. Use strong phrases like the ones suggested, and make sure your image would be impactful if shared on social media. When possible, include the BattleForTheNet.com URL into the image or description that accompanies it.

  3. Include the tag #BattleForTheNet when you submit your art. When you use this tag you agree the art can be used by anyone (or any organization) promoting net neutrality.

  4. Comment on this article with a link to your deviation.



SOME IDEAS

  • Illustrate the cable and telephone companies throttling Web developers
  • Depict greedy cable executives trolling the halls of government to wield power against the the netizens of the world
  • Try your hand at political cartooning
  • More examples

Well yeah of course. But this is the Internet, there's plenty of people with different opinions and you just can't censor them. That would be pretty hypocritical to support freedom but freedom to some.
