‘Don’t let Hollywood hijack the net’
« on: January 19, 2010, 03:08:22 am »
To vested interest concerns such as Big Music’s RIAA and Hollywood’s MPAA, net neutrality is something to be feared and loathed.

To them it means terrifying loss of control. But to others, it means openness and freedom.

In October last year the US Federal Communications Commission took the first step “toward creating formal net neutrality rules, despite a huge lobbying effort from opposing groups in recent days,” said NetworkWorld, going on:

“The FCC voted … to open a rulemaking process and begin receiving comments on a proposal to create new net neutrality rules following a contentious debate on whether new regulations are needed.

...'terrifying loss of control'...says it all right there...
...nothing has ever terrified any dictatorship or other totalitarian regime throughout history more than the prospect of any threat to its power...which is why they almost invariably resort to the iron fist...

'...Imagine trying to explain to a customer how you used a Colpittsilator to test the Bardeenabrattainistorized a. f. section of his Marconio, only to find it wouldn't respond to frequencies below two hundred hertz...' --Letter to the editors, Popular Electronics magazine, August 1966
