"Sure, Diva, but what can I do about it?" Glad you asked, random reader of this article! To begin with, make your voice heard by your representatives, the FCC, and anybody else you can think of.

Go to gofccyourself.com to add your thoughts on the FCC ruling, or visit BattleForTheNet.com for information on protests and other activism activities.
