Top Democrat on House Technology Subcommittee Turns to Reddit to Rebrand Net Neutrality

August 21, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House technology subcommittee, is asking Reddit to "rebrand" net neutrality. The contest, found here, seeks to repackage and rename the concept of equal treatment for online content and to "bring some clarity to an otherwise muddy legal debate before the FCC finalizes its proposed open Internet rules."

"Internet users know what they want and expect from the Internet, but these days all the jargon about net neutrality rules is making it difficult to know what box to check that advances their best interest,” Eshoo wrote.

"If Internet users care about their right to uninhibited access to the Internet, this is their opportunity to have an impact on the process, to help put the advantage back in the hands of the Internet user, and to ensure that the free and open Internet prevails," she added.

The most popular proposal on Reddit by Sept. 8 will be declared the winner. The one caveat for those with salty vocabularies is that some words are not allowed.

"Participants are reminded to refrain from using vulgar or otherwise inappropriate language," Eshoo said.
