Nice of these firms to be so concerned about issues like «protecting Internet freedom» and «empowering users», but for some strange reason I suspect that organisations like the FSF (www.fsf.org/) and the EFF (www.eff.org/) will probably be far more engaged in these particular areas....
"but there's also the risk of self interest getting in the way" This is what worries me. More when it comes to privacy issues. Where is the line to be drawn, and who is going to draw it. It's sounds worrisome when the companies who have had the antitrust and privacy charges are trying to be the ones fighting for internet freedom, whose freedom?
