Did you get similar email letter from EBAY? at first I thought it’s about privacy or the taxation stuff for ebay sellers. Apparently I don’t really know what it really is, but for sure it has to do with the internet overall and the government interference, not just ebay. The government really should prioritize what really need to be done at the moment, ISIS is coming to the US soon.

Tell the FCC to safeguard the Internet for all users
Dear Main Street Member,
As we recently reported, the fight for Network Neutrality continues as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) seeks public opinion on the best way to preserve Open Internet access in the United States. Millions of Americans from all across the country have already voiced their opinion on the importance of protecting the future of the Internet. In a blog post earlier this week from Richard Nash, eBay Inc.’s Head of Government Relations for the Americas, eBay Inc. reiterated its concerns with broadband service providers developing business models that create slow lanes and fast lanes on the Internet and urged the FCC to make sure there are no barriers to entry to the digital world.
“eBay Inc. believes the principle we call net neutrality is worthy of the strongest protections. The Internet has become such an important tool for communications, commerce, education and leisure, and has the power to accelerate inclusion in the digital world for people across the globe,” wrote Nash. “Making sure EVERYONE can access what he or she chooses on the Internet, however they wish, is something we shouldn’t take for granted.”
It is not too late to join us and voice your concern. If you believe that the current open model of the Internet, without fast lanes and slow lanes based on business deals by broadband providers, is important, now is a great time to get involved. You can add your voice to the debate by submitting a comment to the FCC.
The principle of net neutrality is critical for the Internet of today and for the future. Thank you for joining us as we fight for this important issue!
