Americans for Tax Reform announces the launch of DigitalLiberty.Net, a new project that advocates for free-market Internet, technology, telecommunications, and media policy. Digital Liberty will provide policy analysis on issues impacting the Internet and technology, and will be a resource for grassroots activists who believe in free-markets and consumer choice. Digital Liberty’s launch reception was held at the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference.
Kelly William Cobb, executive director of DigitalLiberty.Net, issued the following statement:
“In recent years, states and the federal government have sought dramatic influence over our Internet, technology, telecommunications, and media landscape. The FCC passed onerous rules to regulate the Internet under ‘Net Neutrality.” Congress and federal agencies are pushing Internet regulations under the guise of protecting online privacy, while ignoring reforms that would protect our 4th Amendment online privacy from government. States across the country want to stifle free speech by replacing ‘parental controls’ on video games with ‘government controls.’ The list goes on. We believe that free markets and consumer choice – not state and federal bureaucrats – should determine the American technology and media landscape.
“Digital Liberty is dedicated to preserving a free market by pushing back against heavy regulation and taxation of all things Internet, tech, telecom, and media. DigitalLiberty.net will serve as a resource for those who believe in constitutionally limited government by providing news updates and policy briefs on tech issues, sharing research from likeminded organizations, and serving the grassroots who believe that technology and media innovation thrives best when markets are free and individuals are free to choose.”
