I would be in favor of an Open Internet Act and an Internet Fair Use Act as long as they kept the Internet open and free and kept the hands of the RIAA, the MPAA, the US government, UK government, the European Union, China, etc. off of the Internet. Also I found out that ACTA is Dead for now as the EU Got rid it after lots of Protests in Europe. This Post was mentioned in Chris's Geek Out For July 5th.
Why limit to the US Government? Extend that to any government like the UK Government, the European Union, China, etc.

we dont need any act !!!
the internet has always been open and free any such ACT as you call it would be hands on not hands off :) s
an act is another word for Law any such law involves government , thus far the internet has been self governed and I would think any attempt to change such and government would face a pretty stiff battle remembers governments are made up of people isn't that who is using the internet ???
This is called the WORLD WIDE WEB (Internet) yes, he who is chosen to rule for the web is chosen to rule for the the internet is chosen to rule for the world I would be very careful what you are quick to accept ..
we are the world the internet is self governed see how well that works , the internet usually self corrects its self very well, the records Video and Piracy stuff though it does cost people who work hard $$ is a very small issue which is correcting its self , and not all to slowly look around at the direction personal computing is taking and its not had to see that in a short time there will only be one way to get new Media and programs aps and such and that is through cloud computing and paying for personal streaming services there isn't going to be any really easy way to pirate much in 15 or 20 years people will look at the stories about piracy and wonder what it was all about and how it was possible ..
there are no governments making the changes to the hardware and software we use its people programmers engineers from the internet community yeah some paid by big corporations no doubt But not government and even the big corps are setting there software to the open source community for development and refining even Microsoft think they want anything to do with the government they already been sued by government ...
you may think its a stretch but give it some thought
