New Lobbying Group Calls for Internet Filtering

A just-formed lobbying group of content producers, equipment makers and internet gatekeepers said Thursday that internet service providers should embrace filtering.

Behind the lobby are AT&T, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, NBC Universal,
Viacom and the Songwriters Guild of America. Among other things, the
lobby, called Arts+Labs, says “network operators must have the flexibility to manage and
expand their networks to defend against net pollution and illegal
file-trafficking which threatens to congest and delay the network for
all consumers.”
