ELECTRONIC FRONTIER FOUNDATION

Let’s start with the worst: content-based discrimination, which is completely unacceptable. In 2005, Telus, a Canadian ISP, blocked access to a website that was used to plan actions by the Telecommunications Workers Union during a strike. In 2007, AT&T deleted Eddy Vedder’s criticism of George W. Bush during a webcasted Pearl Jam concert.  Although AT&T was technically acting in the capacity of a content provider, content providers and Internet providers have merged dramatically in the past few years, resulting in the lines becoming uncomfortably blurred. This sort of censorship threatens both innovation and free speech.
