Tuesday, October 16, 2012 EDRi response to EC consultation - why does this read like 2007? EDRi's response to the latest retro EC consultation on net neutrality is an enjoyable deconstruction of the extraordinarily amnesiac consultation questions - the EC is pretending it's not yet 2007 and the problem can be solved through 'super-user' consumers understanding exactly what (illegal) throttling is being undertaken, and switching contracts (which is itself, er, illegal in most Member States). The EC appears to have decided not to enforce its' own legal requirements?

New Flare-Up in Capitol Over 'Net Neutrality' Updated Feb. 17, 2011 12:01 a.m. ET WASHINGTON—In a contentious hearing, House Republicans attacked new regulations for broadband Internet lines and criticized the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission for adopting them. Republicans are targeting the "net neutrality" rules, which would bar Internet providers from blocking or slowing Internet traffic and services, as well as new regulations in such areas as health care and the environment, as unnecessary and overly burdensome on industry.

Center for Democracy & Technology | Keeping the Internet Open, Innovative and Free Center for Democracy & Technology | Keeping the Internet Open, Innovative and Free The ability to create new content and services on the Internet without seeking permission from gatekeepers has enabled unprecedented innovation. Regulatory safeguards are needed to protect against the risk that by favoring some Internet traffic over others, broadband providers could become gatekeepers and undermine the medium’s openness. At the same time, burdensome regulation could interfere with legitimate network management. A balance must be struck that prevents unreasonable discrimination without granting government unfettered jurisdiction over the Internet.

THE “LEGISLATIVE framework proposal’’ on net neutrality released by and last week was a shock and a disappointment for those who had bought into Google’s motto of “Don’t be evil.’’ It’s a sad example of what happens when corporations are allowed to write regulatory rules — and why the Federal Communications Commission needs to re-seize the reins on broadband regulation. Net neutrality — the concept that Internet service providers shouldn’t be able to “shape’’ traffic, by, say, providing access to certain, popular sites at a speedier rate than newer, less popular ones — is one of the defining issues for the future of communications. After Google-Verizon fizzle, FCC should force Net neutrality
Spaniard bloggers have been very busy discussing and arguing about the recent Google-Verizon proposed policy for an open Internet. Most of them are against it because they consider it a very delicate subject because of the not so distant issue of the Sinde discussion when, “the Spanish Government announced at the beginning of December 2009 a proposal that may lead to shutting down websites that offer P2P file sharing of music and films, without the necessity of a court order.

It didn't take long for criticism of the Verizon/Google net neutrality proposal to start pouring in. "[I]nterest groups, bloggers, and even Google fanboys [have started] discrediting the plan" according to one trade publication. Although most of the commentary simply echoes various groups' long-held positions, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the nation's foremost cyber-rights watchdog, provided a crucial insight about the plan that goes to the core of the net neutrality issue. EFF found merit with some aspects of the proposal, particularly with regard to limiting the FCC"s regulatory authority. The NGO stated that although they strongly support net neutrality, "we are opposed to open-ended grants of regulatory authority to the FCC."
