Rock the Net: a bad "lip synching" performance of Moveon.org's song

The Future of Music has created a supposed new "coalition" "Rock the Net" to promote net neutrality by banding together music groups who have been suckered into fearing that the Internet will somehow be taken away from them -- without net neutrality legislation.
This is not about policy or legislation.
This is a cheap publicity stunt.
"Rock the net" is basically a bad "lip synching performance" by music groups singing liberal Moveon.org's pre-canned song.
"Lip synching" is the perfect metaphor for the supposed net neutrality grass roots "movement" overall.
Look more closely at the supposed million plus people that supposedly signed the "petition" in favor of net neutrality?
Moveon.org's SaveTheInternet also claims hundreds of organizations who support net neutrality.
Bottom line: Watch closely to the supposed "net roots" movement on net neutrality -- they aren't singing their own original material, they are just "lip synching" for Moveon.org.
