    The Internet is the communications medium of our era. Serving as a platform to anyone with an idea, the open Internet empowers freedom of speech and freedom of expression. But the FCC is now proposing rules that would kill — rather than protect — Net Neutrality and allow rampant discrimination online.[...]

    My open comment to the signers of this letter and just my two cent, cause I don't know all these guys, neither all the names, nor only one of them personally and it has nothing to do with the music and art they make.

    Very early guys, this statement, when its probably to late. Where have you been all the last decade - always busy with making money?

    For me, this is probably just a PR maneuver for - the show must go on - and the conscience.

    Sign of the times - Trust? Money! m(
