ACLU Net Neutrality report highly critical of FCC and business [Telecom]

Interesting report released yesterday (19-OCT-2010):

27 pages and 812KB.

Following is an extract from Slashdot: " " "Freedom of expression isn't worth much if the forums " where people actually make use of it are not themselves " free. And the Internet is without doubt the primary place " where Americans exercise their right to free expression. " It's a newspaper, an entertainment medium, a reference " work, a therapist's office, a soapbox, a debating stand. " It is the closest thing ever invented to a true "free " market" of ideas." " " The report then goes on to argue that ISPs have incentive " and capability of interfering with internet traffic. And not " only that but the argument that it is only 'theoretical' " are bogus given they list ten high profile cases of it " actually happening. If the ACLU can successfully argue that " Net Neutrality is a First Amendment Issue then it might not " matter what businesses (who fall on either side of the issue) " want the government to do.
