You should stop what you are doing right now and go read and then sign the Internet Declaration Of Freedom.
We stand for a free and open Internet.
We support transparent and participatory processes for making Internet policy and the establishment of five basic principles:
Expression: Don’t censor the Internet.
Access: Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks.
Openness: Keep the Internet an open network where everyone is free to connect, communicate, write, read, watch, speak, listen, learn, create and innovate.
Innovation: Protect the freedom to innovate and create without permission. Don’t block new technologies, and don’t punish innovators for their users’ actions.
Privacy: Protect privacy and defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used.
Pretty basic and to the point, isn’t it?
As corporations continue to corrupt governments via unfettered lobbying and attempt to bypass democratic process with secret trade treaties like ACTA, SOPA, PIPA and TPP it is essential that citizens stand up and proclaim these freedoms to be inviolate. Add your name, as an individual or an organization, and tell those who would seek to control the internet to fuck off.
