Net Neutrality: Top 10 Names the Government should consider for their Rebranding Contest

When most people hear the words “Net Neutrality” they immediate think of the internet as we know it being destroyed. All of the negativity and confusion around the term “Net Neutrality” is making it difficult to know what box to check that advances their best interest. In order to gain some clarity in the legal debate over Net Neutrality, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo is launching a contest on Reddit to let internet users choose a new name for Net Neutrality. These are our top 10 favorites so far!

10. Freedom to Connect (F2C)

9. The OPEN Internet Act

8. Opting for Parity Equality and Neutrality for all Americans

7. The Net Amendment

6. FreeNet

5. Internet Freedom Act

4. Common Sense

3. Internet Liberty

2. Internet Without Borders

1. The Old McDonald Act: Equal Internet for Everyone Involved Online (EIEIO)

    I just want to hear all the 6 o’clock news talk about the new FOCK act, FOCK initiatives, FOCK proponents and of course FOCK debates. People who are for the new act would be FOCKers.
