The fight for Net Neutrality

IP Democracy informs us that the FCC has released a densely written report on Net Neutrality. When a federal agency releases a lengthy and densely written report, that is usually a sign they are hoping no one will read it. Therefore, we would be well advised to read this report with close attention that we may discover whatever it is they did not want us to discover.

Clearly opponents of Net Neutrality are feeling the heat. John Kneuer, the assistant secretary for communications and information, completely lost it and lashed out at proponents of Net Neutrality at Supernova 2007.

Small companies are the one of the main beneficiaries or Net Neutrality. Small companies, especially Web 2.0 companies, are usually a-political and don’t have significant public affairs efforts. This is not a time to be silent and we must all hope they will understand the necessity of defending their interests.
