Net Neutrality Remix Event

We would never do this to you, but your ISP just might! It doesn't take much to imagine that this sort of thing will be popping up all over a non-neutral net... courtesy of Fight For The Future.

Here we go again! Net Neutrality is at risk, and we're coming together to push the FCC to preserve a neutral net. In the spirit of "THIS AGAIN?!" we have delved back into the FMA's own podcast archive and pulled a bunch of samples from our podcast about Net Neutrality from 2014 with Michael Weinberg from Public Knowledge (back then - he now works for Shapeways, and we interviewed him about IP and 3D Printing too). We've released the following soundbytes using CC0, so we encourage you to remix them to your heart's desire! 


Our friends at ccMixter are joining the fray - if you want to contribute to the music-making process over there, find out how you can Remix Net Neutrality.

Need stems or other bits of audio to use? No prob! We have a few beat pack and stem packs (Loop Mania, Bonus Beat Blast, Not Drunk) and of course there are tons of resources for this purpose over at and

Of course, you're also welcome to grab something from our vast Public Domain/CC0 collections and mix with those, including our microSong Challenge and Masters Remastered Challenge, all of which have been released into the public domain by the goodwill of FMA artists and contributors!

Mark Your Calendars for Net Neutrality Day!

Keep the Internet weird, and secure the future of untold meme stashes on July 12th.

Remember all that hullaballoo a couple of years ago, when #NetNeutrality was the rallying cry on the interwebs? That simmered down, but it's about to boil over again. If you don't remember what "net neutrality" is, it's the idea that ISPs (Internet Service Providers) should allow equal access to all content and applications online, regardless of where it comes from, and without favoring or blocking specific sites or applications.

If net neutrality is taken away, it can spell disaster for the current web. One scenario puts many sites at risk that depend on their communities for participation, traffic and support (y'know, like the site you're looking at right now).

Current FCC Chairman and former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai wants to change the rules for cable companies, giving them even more control over what users can see and do online. There have been a few pushes for net neutrality advocacy since Pai became FCC Chairman, including John Oliver's "Go FCC Yourself" bit that temporarily jammed the FCC comment form.

Fight For The Future and dozens of websites, including our friends Kickstarter, Vimeo and of course, Creative Commons, will be participating in the Day of Action. The deadline for first comments to the FCC is July17th, so on July 12th the web will come together and raise the banner: it's time to speak up.
