Cable TV regulators want Oregon attorney general to investigate Comcast | Mike Rogoway | OregonLive.com

Cable TV regulators want Oregon attorney general to investigate Comcast | Mike Rogoway | OregonLive.com | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Cable regulators from four Oregon communities want the state attorney general to investigate Comcast, expressing concern that the cable TV company's billing practices may violate state consumer protection laws.

Regulators in Multnomah and Washington counties, along with the cities of Milwaukie and Eugene, wrote to the Oregon Department of Justice about broadcast and sports fees Comcast tacks onto subscribers' bills. The fees ostensibly cover the costs of carrying local broadcast channels and expensive national sports networks.

When fees go up, as they did last fall, Comcast charges a higher rate to all TV subscribers - even those under contracts that used to protect them from rate hikes. Since 2013, contracts no longer lock in those prices.

"That's a little bait-and-switchy," said Fred Christ, administrator of the Metropolitan Area Communications Commission, which regulates cable TV service in much of Washington County.

90 years later, the broadcast public interest standard remains ill-defined | Brookings Institution

90 years later, the broadcast public interest standard remains ill-defined | Brookings Institution | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

"The public interest standard has governed broadcast radio and television since Congress passed the Radio Act of 1927. However, decades of successive court cases and updated telecommunications laws have done little to clarify what falls into the public interest. The Radio Act gave local broadcasters monopolies over specific channels of electromagnetic spectrum to reduce interference on public airwaves. In exchange for control over a limited resource, the text of the law instructs broadcasters to operate in the “public interest, convenience, and necessity”. A recently released paper by Center for Technology Innovation Nonresident Senior Fellow Stuart N. Brotman outlines the legislative, judicial, and regulatory history of this public interest standard and offers some recommendations for how it might be reformed."

Spectrum Hearing Reveals Raw Wounds From Broadband Privacy Rule Rollback | John Eggerton | Broadcasting & Cable

Spectrum Hearing Reveals Raw Wounds From Broadband Privacy Rule Rollback | John Eggerton | Broadcasting & Cable | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

The House Communications Subcommittee held a hearing on wireless spectrum and the economy, but it had to wait for Democrats and Republicans to air out their grievances over the passage last week of the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution rolling back FCC broadband privacy regulations.

The back-and-forth was particularly heated and even personal, illustrating the widening political divide on Capitol Hill.

Ranking member Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) and parent Energy & Commerce Committee ranking member Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) used their opening statements to weigh in on Republicans "ramming" the CRA down the "public's throat," as Doyle put it.

How To Keep Your Browsing History Actually Private

How To Keep Your Browsing History Actually Private | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Congress voted to allow your Internet service providers to sell your online activity to advertisers – here’s the simplest way to prevent that from happening.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Flood the White House with calls ....tweet the real Donald and tell him No Deal!!! Veto the repeal of our online privacy! We do not give consent to allowing the Republicans to steal our intellectual property in the form of the bronzing history we personally created. Just like a dairy we might write or other records we create. And we did not give consent to the sale and we need to demand all profits from these sales are paid directly to us. Send your internet provider the amount they must pay you for the history they think they get to steal. 2 billion a price sounds about right! To me what about you?

Trump’s FCC May Let ISPs Sell Your Private Data Without Your Consent

Trump’s FCC May Let ISPs Sell Your Private Data Without Your Consent | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
ISPs like Comcast and AT&T want Republicans to roll back FCC “opt-in” data privacy protections.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Should we demand payment for using our personal data with or without our consent? Does anyone remember signing up to have AT&T , Verizon or Comcast for the purpose of paying them to profit off your search and personal data for free to them? ...It’s not free to us...We paid them for something and I don't think that was what we paid for! IF we sold them our data to sell to someone else we should get paid for something not be paying them to sell something we personally created and collect nothing for what is our own.

Those who take something without your consent are stealing and those that sell it are fencing the goods and those that set up that arrangements to enable the sale of stolen goods are fencers of stolen goods or information….Which it appears Congress last week decided to fence our stolen intellectual property or pimp it out to have these rich sugar daddy donors pay to keep OFFICAILS loyal to that money they all plan to make selling us out!

Are our searches our intellectual property just like some one’s film or artwork or writing? We did create these with our time through a tool we paid to use. Does a journal and pencil making company own the rights to everything written? Or does the post office own it since it delivered the mail? Does AT&T own every conversation ever carried over its’ wires and own the right the right to sell those conversations however they chose? They should sell only AT&T’s searches the ones that company runs on any given day…not ours. The personal searches of the president of AT&T and the board members are the property of that company not my personal search …I don’t work for them… they work for me last I checked. My name is on their payment check and not the other way around. I don't remember them asking me if I wanted to sell that information or how much they must pay me for it on royalties for each use. Who owns our personal data and search history? IF THEY THINK THEY DO OR IF CONGRESS THINKS IT’S THEIR PROPETY TO SELLOUT WE NEED TO FIRE BOTH OUR OFFICALS AND OUR INTERNET SERVICES! They truly don’t understand their job descriptions!

This article sums the treat up and Trump's congress just did do this to us for their telecom industry donors AT&T is the corporate chair of ALEC in 5 states (including Mississippi) and they plan to get what they want from the GOP officials that are their members and they get elected to push their business desires...So in the last week GOP controlled congress voted to sell your privacy for the lobby bill mill ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) millionaire/ billionaire membership club, where ALEC allows officials to join on the cheap but everyone else and corporations pay 5,000 or more for annual membership and access to those officials ..In The last 5 days thy gifted our privacy to these greedy companies that know for sure most of us paying them for service do not which to have this information sold without tour consent and perhaps paying us for the use if we do share such information. Now we must opt out to save privacy...or you could simply not do any searches and stay off line or drop the internet altogether. Call and write every congressman that supported this and tell them they are fired! These companies plan to sell our private data and we pay them for service to be connected to access what we choose on the internet...Should we not demand payment for using our personal data with or without our consent?

FCC Chairman Pai Gets an “F” for Fake History of Broadband: Ever Hear of TeleKansas? | Bruce Kushnick Blog | HuffPost.com

FCC Chairman Pai Gets an “F” for Fake History of Broadband: Ever Hear of TeleKansas? | Bruce Kushnick Blog | HuffPost.com | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Did you ever hear of TeleKansas I and II, the plan to wire Kansas high schools, colleges, universities and hospitals with fiber optics, starting in 1994? This was on top of the hype by now-AT&T to bring fiber optic wires to homes and businesses, especially in rural areas, replacing the aging copper wires. And did you know customers were charged in multiple ways for these upgrades via state laws that were changed multiple times as part of TeleKansas? And maybe you haven’t heard that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai comes from rural Kansas and never mentioned any of this, as far as we can tell, ever.

On April 20th, 2017, the FCC, led by Chairman Pai, is planning on doing a hatchet job that guts consumer protections, blocks competition, and allows for monopoly rate increases of business data services, among other ill conceived acts.

Point of fact, what follows details how Fake History is being used to create harmful public policies. History is supposedly written by the winners; this means we lost unless we take actions to stop it.

Net neutrality protestors just Rickrolled the FCC’s monthly meeting | Jacob Kastrenakes | The Verge | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

The Federal Communications Commission is holding its monthly meeting right now to vote on a handful of new proposals. But right in the middle of one of FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s first speeches, the room broke out on song — he was Rickrolled.

The singing came from a group of protestors organized by Free Press, who were there to demand continued support for net neutrality. They put an extremely nerdy twist on Rick Astley’s lyrics — “a common carrier’s what we’re thinking of / we wouldn’t sing this to any other Pai” — before being escorted out by security.

How to Create an Attractive Post

 

It's great to have a strong number of subscribers -- but you need strong content to go along with that. I agree that your audience needs to be both educated and entertained in order to capture their attention.
