The FCC released its full rules for Net Neutrality Thursday morning. The 400-page document — including dissent from the two Republicans on the commission — was published via the very Internet the FCC seeks to regulate.
Under the new rules the Internet would be regulated as a public utility, much the same as the telephone and cable TV industries already are. If it requires 400 pages of regulations to keep the Internet "open and secure," one wonders how it survived this long without those regulatons.
Secretary of State John Kerry says manmade global warming is a fact as settled as the law of gravity and failing to act on it “is just plain immoral.”
Republican lawmakers are pursuing legislation to reverse the FCC's February 26 Net Neutrality ruling, which at least one lawmaker describes as "illegal." If the ruling is implemented, the Internet would be regulated as a public utility under Title II of the Communications Act.
The UN special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression, David Kaye, has praised the Net Neutrality plan of the FCC, but he ignores how Net Neutrality is already playing out in other countries.
