You probably know the impending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement could make your Internet more expensive, surveilled, and restricted. It’s a bad deal—we’re trading Internet freedom for expensive fines and surveillance. That’s why over 115,000 people in the OpenMedia community signed the StopTheTrap.net petition.
Well now, check this out: At this very moment we’re hosting a live online question-and-answer session about the TPP and other Internet issues, with our own Steve Anderson and leading advocates and experts:
- Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit
- Ben Huh, CEO of The Cheezburger Network
- Dr. Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair in Internet and e-commerce law
- Digital rights advocates and experts from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Electronic Frontiers Australia, InternetNZ, Public Knowledge, Public Citizen
- Online innovators from Techdirt and TuCows, and Michael Tippett from Ayoudo
- Civil society leaders from the ACLU and Personal Democracy Media
Do you have a question about the future of the Internet? Want to learn more about the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership’s (TPP) Internet trap? Have an idea for how we can reach more people with the crucial StopTheTrap.net campaign?
