Protecting the IT infrastructure and competitiveness of the U.S.
- U.S. companies and individuals must have access to a "full service" internet - no turning over control to a few large telcos
- No encumbering of open source software - any legislation that impedes the use of open source software in the U.S. will simply put us behind countries without restrictive laws
- By all means protect intellectual property, but do so in a fare and balanced way - in other words, don't bend over too far for big business
- Our elected officials must remember that while open competitive markets are a good thing, for capitalism to work over the long term governments must prevent multi-national corporations from breaking laws and must not pass laws very much against public good, but in favor of multi-national corporations
