'Save the open internet in Europe,' pleads web inventor Tim Berners-Lee

"Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web, has made an impassioned argument in favor of net neutrality in Europe, calling on European citizens to stop legislation that could see the creation of so-called internet "fast lanes."

In an open letter published by the World Wide Web Foundation on Thursday, Berners-Lee and law academics Barbara van Schewick and Lawrence Lessig warn that "potential loopholes" in EU guidelines could threaten the open nature of the internet. The guidelines are being written following a European Parliament vote on net neutrality in October."
