The neutrality principle has made the Internet an open, creative and free media. It is already being put under threat by the world’s authoritarian states, led by China. It would be disastrous if the United States was to give it up as well,” it concluded.Under the neutrality principle operators (such as Verizon, France Telecom) are not allowed to make any distinction between people and organisations which provide a Net service. For example, Internet service providers would not be allowed to sign contracts with blogs or websites to provide them with a better service than it provides to others.The US telecoms operators wanting to provide video on demand for example would require a significant bandwidth. At present a blog uses the same network as the CNN website, so a step in that direction would mean creating two Internets: one high speed, for commercial concerns; the other slower for all those without the means to pay for the operators’ services. In this scenario, Internet-users could reject blogs or other “minor sources” of information in favour of looking up pages which are faster to access.Many countries already violate the principle of Internet neutrality by blocking access to online publications which displease them. The Net should serve to transmit information, without reference to its origin or destination. Only the users should be able to decide which content they want to access. Therefore, abandoning the neutrality principle in the United States would increase the risk of spreading the Chinese model – a more centralised network in which access providers would have improper and decisive power over content transmission.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org Reporters Without Borders said today it is backing the principle of Internet ‘neutrality’ as the US Senate Commerce Committee is due to meet on Thursday to discuss renewal of the 1996 telecommunications law.

Arrested on 15 June 2008 along with 16 other people near the city of Bogale for helping to bury the bodies of Cyclone Nargis victims, he was initially sentenced to eight years in prison by a court in Insein prison under section 7 of the Unlawful Association Act.“I was sentenced to eight years in prison, but my sentence was reduced,” Aung Kyaw San said to Mizzima News, after his release. “I served two years and seven months and 11 days, including the interrogation period. My detention during the interrogation was not counted. The junta seems flexible, but in fact they have become worse. Political prisoners did not get some rights which other prisoners got.”Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association urge the Burmese junta to immediately release all the other journalists and free speech defenders who were jailed for helping the victims of Cyclone Nargis. Three bloggers and journalists – Zarganar, Zaw Thet Htwe and Thant Zin Aung – were given long jail terms for this reason in November 2008.Zarganar, whose real name is Ko Thura, turned 50 in prison a week ago, on 27 January.
