FCC proposal recasts Internet as public utility WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- The Federal Communications Commission will seek more influence on Internet regulation to ensure net neutrality, its chairman said Wednesday. In an editorial published on the website of the magazine Wired, Tom Wheeler explained new rules, proposed this week, "to preserve the Internet as an open platform for innovation and free expression. This proposal is rooted in long-standing regulatory principles, marketplace experience, and public input." The new rules will cast high-speed Internet service as a public utility, an unidentified person, who was consulted the FCC on the proposal, told CNN.

Gov't Prepping Patriot Patsies To Take The Fall Case Study As CCW's Rise Crime Rate Falles Infowars Launches Operation "Expose Domestic Torture Sites" Police Caught Issuing Illegal Orders Reporters Harassed at Secret Torture Site in Chicago » U.S. Senate rushing through cyber-surveillance bill Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind! Today the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee will secretly consider the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), a bill that would enable companies to sign, seal, and deliver your personal information to the NSA. The draft bill allows companies to forward “cyber threat indicators” to the government, which are then distributed with every relevant agency (e.g. the NSA.) Companies that share information would be protected against lawsuits, even if users feel their privacy was violated. CISA may even endanger the integrity of the internet by allowing companies to “hack back” when they face a cybersecurity threat — even though attributing attacks remains notoriously difficult and there is a real risk they may harm innocent users. Digital security experts — including us at Access — have made clear that “information sharing” legislation, such as CISA and similar bills, should not be a priority for cybersecurity.

TPP: Internet Freedom Activists Protest Secret Trade Agreement Being Negotiated This Week The U.S. content industry will try anything to preserve its profit margin and power over the creative content market at the expense of the Internet. They will use any tactic that circumvents democratic processes to make new rules for the Internet that favor their interests and not the interests of Internet users or the technical community that actually builds the Internet as we know it. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is yet another example of these tactics.
Lawmakers: U.S. plan for Internet may be unconstitutional President Obama's plan to "internationalize" the Internet may be unconstitutional, key members of Congress are claiming. The group of lawmakers sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office last week, saying the plan to relinquish oversight of Internet domain name functions to a global, multi-stakeholder body raised questions about the administration's "authority to transfer possession and control of critical components of the Internet's infrastructure to a third party." The letter was signed by the chairmen of both congressional judiciary committees, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va; presidential candidate Sen.

Tracking company Mixpanel knows who you are…yes, you specifically Next up in our coverage of specific tracking companies we’ve added to DoNotTrackMe’s block list is Mixpanel. What’s most unique and concerning about Mixpanel from a privacy perspective is that they advertise that they can tie their incredibly detailed tracking data to specific individuals. Although it happens and it’s certainly been done before, advertisers typically don’t admit it: they focus on data being aggregated and “de-identified” and thus lacking privacy risks (which isn’t always true, but that’s the industry stance and one of their key talking points).
Merkel, Hollande to discuss European communication network avoiding U.S. BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday she would talk to French President Francois Hollande about building up a European communication network to avoid emails and other data passing through the United States. Merkel, who visits France on Wednesday, has been pushing for greater data protection in Europe following reports last year about mass surveillance in Germany and elsewhere by the U.S. National Security Agency. Even Merkel's cell phone was reportedly monitored by American spies. Merkel said in her weekly podcast that she disapproved of companies such as Google and Facebook basing their operations in countries with low levels of data protection while being active in countries such as Germany with high data protection. "We'll talk with France about how we can maintain a high level of data protection," Merkel said.
