Dateline (New York City) On December 14, 2012, 89 of the 144 involved countries (almost two thirds) signed a controversial ITU (International Telecommunications Union) treaty at secret meetings in Dubai, that would, in essence, provide internet oversight (what some call censorship) and ITU regulation of the web. Publicist George Goldstein announced a 2013 World Wide New Year’s Eve Flash Mob Event (Auld Lang Syne) to celebrate the current "Free & Open Web" and raise awareness about the actions at the recent secret meetings. Anyone in the world can participate by downloading Scott West’s FREE Auld Lang Syne ringtone and then sending it to their friends and family to ring in the new year to raise worldwide awareness.

2012 has seen many different attempts to legislate censorship, control, internet user charges and taxation of the free and open internet. Google has set up a special website to help unite worldwide web users against these attacks on a free and open web: According to Goldstein, “We want to make everyone aware of what is happening so everyone in the world can come together on New Year’s Eve and send this message with the FREE Auld Lang Syne ringtone to all of their friends and family. And then have them all register their support of a FREE & Open internet at Google. We aren’t in any way associated with Google, but we believe in what they are doing to try to save the FREE & Open Web for the billions that use it.”

A massive worldwide effort is needed to send a message to all governments to stop the ITU and others' efforts to control the web. 89 governments have already signed to participate in the ITU Internet Treaty. Auld Lang Syne has been a traditional song of remembrance, hope and freedom for many centuries, and other than Happy Birthday, Auld Lang Syne is the most recognized song in the Western World. “West’s Auld Lang Syne features the soaring electric guitars of Tesla's Frank Hannon. You can download West’s famous Auld Lang Syne ringtone for FREE at ( "We want to make make sure the FREE Auld Lang Syne ringtone tradition continues and isn’t censored, regulated, taxed and charged for by special interests and those benefiting from the UN internet treaty,” Goldstein said.

The worldwide Auld Lang Syne flash mob will occur at midnight all over the world, when people call their friends, family and loved ones to ring in the New Year with Auld Lang Syne and remind them to go to Google’s website and register their voice against the ITU and those special interests seeking to censor, control, tax and charge those on the web to use the internet.
