If you have already signed be sure to share the link so that the word will spread.
hey real talk for a second
the deadline for this petition is in THREE WEEKS
and it’s not even halfway to meeting the goal.
If it doesn’t meet the goal, IT’S OVER. THE PETITION IS REMOVED. THE END.
I know it might be a little annoying to take a whole two minutes out of your life to make an account and sign this, but that little annoyance pales in comparison to the fact that right now, MASSIVE CORPORATIONS NOW HAVE THE POWER TO CONTROL HOW THE INTERNET IS RUN
Please, DON’T sit back and think, “Oh, everyone else will sign it. I’ll just reblog.” No. There are literally THOUSANDS of people thinking the exact same thing. There’s a reason this post has almost 20,000 notes more than the number of signatures: It’s because people are liking and reblogging without signing it.
Don’t fall victim to the bystander effect. DO take this very, very seriously. The only requirement for signing is that you are 13 years or older. You don’t have to be a U.S. citizen to sign. So please, take the two minutes. Sign the petition. It’s the only hope we have to fix this.
That’s it! I’m fucking tired of screaming “REMEMBER RICHARD O’DWYER”! You know who I’m gonna post now?
This is Sumner Redstone. SUMNER FUCKING REDSTONE, the owner of this wonderful company called…
THE BIGGEST FUCKING OMNI-CONGLOMERATE OF THE MEDIA INDUSTRY! They own… EVERYTHING! They own pretty much all the industry, but what they’ve YET to own is the internet! And they are very close to owning it all, and we will have to say goodbye to everything. That means:
NO MORE WIKIPEDIA
NO MORE YOUTUBE
NO MORE TUMBLR
NO MORE FACEBOOK
NO MORE REDDIT
NO MORE INTERNET FREEDOM
Do you people realize the importance of this petition? If you do, sign it! If you don’t, then think about this:
Sumner Redstone and his goons at CNET *which is owned by Viacom* deliberately and frivilously distributed file sharing software from 1998 to now. These names include Napster, Kazaa, iMesh, Limewire, Bearshare, WinMX, Frostwire, BitTorrent, uTorrent, JUST TO NAME A FEW! These P2P file sharing systems came bundled with viruses and trojans which were used to gather your IP addresses, your name, your location, and so much more! Ever wonder why you got a threatening letter from the RIAA or MPAA? VIACOM TIPPED THEM OFF WITHOUT YOU EVEN KNOWING IT!
Well, not anymore! SIGN THIS PETITION AND MAKE IT KNOWN TO THE FCC: VIACOM CAN NOT AND WILL NOT CONTROL THE INTERNET AND FORCE US TO ABIDE BY THEIR RULES! THEY CAN PAY OFF AT&T/COMCAST, VERIZON, AND ALL THE OTHERS WITH TRILLIONS, BUT WE ARE THEIR CUSTOMERS, AND WE WON’T STAND FOR BAD BUSINESS LIKE THIS!
