FTC Staff Opposes Net Neutrality

By July 8, 2007June 16th, 2013Internet Lawyer

Instead of supporting heavy-handed regulation as proposed by Google and other major online players, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s staff came out against so-called “Net Neutrality.” Here’s a link to the 170-page report in case you have insomnia.

In plain English, this means that the FTC is going to let competitive market forces determine pricing instead of the government.

In the alternative, one could have elected idiots regulate the Internet when they don’t have a clue what it is…just ask U.S. Senator Ted Stevens. He thinks the Web is a “series of tubes” and “not a big truck.” Check out the video.
