FCC%u2019s Net-Neutrality Rules Upheld by Appeals Court - WSJ. Call it civil rights for Internet data. It would be a wild and wooly Internet world if cable providers and Internet providers could favor some users over others, or charge more for competitors' content coming over the pipe. Internet traffic is too important to too many lives these days. Now, an appeals court has upheld government neutrality rules, and the issue heads to the Supreme Court for a final decision. Content should be consumed equally, on its merits, and not upon the amount of money a content provider pays to an Internet pipe company. As is always true, there are two sides to the issue; and, the companies that build the networks claim they should be able to charge what they want, and regulate the speeds on their own. Each of us should consider both sides and take a position. For me and mine, Internet data is too important to leave to those who would profit from limiting access to data. What do you think?
