Net Neutrality Links
I’m adding this link to the Net Neutrality Page.
Reuters reported last week that the Free Enterprise Action Fund – which holds more than 4,000 shares of Microsoft stock – wants the company to explain its rationale for supporting Net neutrality. The fund wants to put a proposal before shareholders, for an up-or-down vote at the next meeting, which would direct Microsoft management to prepare a report Ã¢â¬Åanalyzing the business and economic rationale, regulatory impacts, legal liabilities and any effects on product development and customersÃ¢â¬Â of Net neutrality.
Sounds reasonable enough.
But Reuters reports that Microsoft has Ã¢â¬Åasked the Securities and Exchange Commission if it could exclude the proposal from its annual shareholder vote without facing enforcement action by the agency.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅWhat is Microsoft afraid of,Ã¢â¬Â asks Tom Borelli, a portfolio manager at the Free Enterprise Action Fund.
