As debate intensifies, net neutrality rivals invest in influence

,----[ Quote ]
| The federal appeals court ruling Tuesday in 
| favor of Comcast Corp. at the expense of 
| the U.S. Federal Communications Commission 
| comes as debate over so-called "net 
| neutrality" intensifies, with companies 
| spending heavily to influence Washington, 
| D.C. policy makers on the issue.


On Net Neutrality

,----[ Quote ]
| This issue will of course be going to the 
| Supreme Court. The Federal Government 
| cannot let this go. Despite the ruling of 
| the Appeals court, the FCC is responsible 
| for a wide variety of communication issues, 
| and many believe that the FCC does have the 
| authority to regulate traffic on the 
| Internet (at least domestically).
| A bigger question though is this. What if 
| the Supreme Court says that the FCC does 
| not have this authority? What happens then? 
| Will it come down to who can buy the 
| largest number of votes on Capitol Hill? 
| And what does that bode for the future of 
| the Internet, and the services many of us 
| have come to rely on?



FCC Democrats determined to reclassify broadband

,----[ Quote ]
| Democrats on the Federal Communications
| Commission say the federal court's decision
| regarding Comcast has renewed their resolve
| to reclassify broadband as a
| telecommunications service in order to
| enact net neutrality regulations.
| "The only way the Commission can make
| lemonade out of this lemon of a decision is
| to do now what should have been done years
| ago: treat broadband as the
| telecommunications service that it is,"
| said Michael J. Copps, the senior
| Democratic member of the panel. "We should
| straighten this broadband classification
| mess out before the first day of summer."
