The Whole World is Watching: From Net Neutrality to Open Internet

If you're reading this, you're by definition an interested party in the impending decision to be made by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding Net Neutrality. If you're an American citizen, it's up to you to influence what the FCC eventually does by sending your comments about the new rules it has proposed. We are sending ours in, contributing as founding members of the Internet Infrastructure Coalition's extensive submission, but your voice is also needed to move from weak Net Neutrality protections to the stronger Open Internet rules that the telecom companies can't get struck down in court.

Gandi and the i2Coalition support new patent reform bill

Have you ever heard of a patent troll?
All innovators face the reality that many, many things have been thought of already, and are patented is some markets. We have to work hard to ensure our ideas are not only useful, necessary, and cool, but also completely new and original. That's why it's so frustrating to see our efforts bogged down with frivolous patent lawsuits. The "trolls" are the often-shadowy legal entities who file these suits, sometimes hundreds of claims at a time, many without merit. Why? Because they can. There is little or no legal barrier or downside to their doing so in the USA, and the suits can cost millions to fight, while the trolls dangle settlements of tens of thousands to make them go away.
