The music community does

The music community does indeed care about "network neutrality" -- we recognize that it is a campaign by Google to make it more difficult to stop theft of our work.

Ya make me proud...

The proposed FCC net

Submitted by Casey on May 26, 2010 - 4:51pm.

The proposed FCC net neutrality rules only apply to lawful content, devices and applications, so there's room to explore technological (or legal) remedies to illegal file-sharing.

There's even a specific exception for copyright within the "reasonable network management" provisions.

We don't like intellectual property theft. AT ALL. We do like legal, licensed services that allow more musicians to reach potential audiences and that give fans access to a broader array of music than at any other point in history. It's even better when the artists aren't forced to surrender their copyrights as a precondition for entering the marketplace.

It's our feeling that a legitimate digital music marketplace is only possible if we have reasonable assurances that allow content producers to compete on a level playing field.

There's a lot of companies, organizations and individuals who support neutrality for the reasons I've stated and more.
