FCC moves on Net neutrality rules
The Federal Communications Commission voted unanimously Thursday to move toward new rules to prevent corporate Internet providers from charging online powers such as Google Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. extra for the large amount of infrastructure and bandwidth they use in delivering their services. While technical, the issue of network neutrality - or Net neutrality - has sparked a furious, expensive lobbying war. This is serious, folks. If it can be screwed up (and it can), the Government will screw it up. Under Obama, it's a certainty. This has to be stopped.
