Net Neutrality Links
I’m adding this link to the Net Neutrality Page.
Net neutrality kills overdue legislation, as new Internet lobby force rises on Capitol Hill.
The Communications, ConsumersÃ¢â¬â¢ Choice and Broadband Deployment Act looks to be on the verge of extinction.
[ . . . ]
The bill is the first piece of comprehensive telecommunications legislation in a decade. It covers a wide range of telecommunications and regulatory issues such as video franchising, universal service, and municipal broadband.
Still, passage of the bill hinges on Net neutrality, a concept not well understood in both the general U.S. population and the Senate.
A coalition of organizations and individuals led by MoveOn.org, the Free Press, Consumers Union, Gun Owners of America, Google, and Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist.org, moved the Net neutrality discussion into the mainstream with a relentless Internet-based lobbying effort.
In both the Senate and House committees, Net neutrality dominated the sometimes disjointed debate. Despite the fact that bills passed in both houses that did not include Net neutrality provisions, the SaveTheInternet.com coalition seems to be on the brink of victory.
