Today on some of your favorite websites, you’ll be seeing a blob on the frontpage which looks something like this.

This is all part of a major online protest in favor of a concept known as net neutrality, which means that internet providers like Comcast and Verizon should treat all internet websites/content providers equally.

The FCC proposed a new rule that would allow internet providers to charge websites money in order to guarantee that the internet providers’ users get to their site faster.

Websites participating include: Reddit, Netflix, Etsy, Tumblr, Mozilla, WordPress, Kickstarter, Upworthy.
