If you haven't heard, The FCC voted to dismantle Obama's Net-Neutrality Regulations. This has caused a lot of commotion lately with people worried about their online freedom. Not to worry though, Industry titans like Netflix, Google, Amazon, Facebook and more have vowed to fight for Net-Neutrality. UpRoxx Reports that,  

"...industry titans like Google, Amazon and Facebook are ready for legal action against the FCC courtesy of the lobbying group the Internet Association who will join lawsuits taking aim at stopping the agency’s repeal of previous regulations. The Internet Association has indicated that they won’t be launching any independent in this matter, electing to throw their weight behind the legal action commenced by other parties."

"Streaming colossus Netflix took aim at the FCC’s net neutrality repeal in a more direct fashion on Friday, using the Internet Association’s statement as a launching point. Unlike a number of high-profile peers, Netflix wasn’t shy about associating their brand name with an FCC battle.

“In 2018, the Internet is united in defense of #NetNeutrality. As for the FCC, we will see you in court,” tweeted Netflix."

This looks like it's gonna be interesting. What you ya'll think?
