A Threat to Internet Freedom: Filmmaker Brian Knappenberger Explains Why Net Neutrality Matters

A cou­ple weeks back, we men­tioned that Bri­an Knap­pen­berg­er had released his new doc­u­men­tary about Aaron Swartz, The Internet’s Own Boy, under a Cre­ative Com­mons license, mak­ing it free to watch online. He now returns with a short op-doc for The New York Times. It’s called A Threat to Inter­net Free­dom, and it explains why pre­serv­ing Net neu­tral­i­ty remains “crit­i­cal­ly impor­tant for the future of Inter­net free­dom and access.” It you’re get­ting up to speed on the whole net neu­tral­i­ty ques­tion, you’ll per­haps want to pair this video with Michael Good­win’s new illus­trat­ed primer, Vi Hart’s doo­dle-filled intro­duc­tion or John Oliv­er’s comedic but not less sub­stan­tive take on the mat­ter.
