we petition the obama administration to:Restore Net Neutrality By Directing
the FCC to Classify Internet Providers as "Common Carriers"

On January 14, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia
Circuit that struck down the Federal Communications Commission's open
internet rules, commonly known as "Net Neutrality" because ISPs are not
classified as "common carriers". This ruling allows ISPs to charge
companies for access to its users and charge users for access to certain
services. Fewer companies will be able to afford access for innovative
ideas and products.

We urge the President to direct the FCC to classify ISPs as "common
carriers" so that the words of the FCC chairman may be fulfilled: "I am
committed to maintaining our networks as engines for economic growth, test
beds for innovative services and products, and channels for all forms of
speech protected by the First Amendment."
