For sale on the Interent: Your private info? Sign our petition to the FCC!

Nobody wants big Internet companies (like AT&T, Comcast, Time Warner and Verizon) to sell our personal info to the highest bidder.

That’s why we’re happy the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has just proposed what could be the strongest online privacy protections ever.

The new rules would require Internet service providers to get your permission BEFORE they share your private information (name, location, online activity…) with advertisers and other third-party corporations.

The FCC has set a May 27 deadline for taking public comments. Big Internet is opposing the new protections—let’s make sure the corporations don’t drown us out!
