Net Neutrality: Attorney Generals from 22 states appeal FCC's repeal

Submitted by: Amadeus @ 01:17 PM | Wednesday, January 17, 2018 | (url: https://www.youtu...)

Leonard French, your facourite copyright attorney, explains all the juicy legal details.

Basically, their argument is that the FCC is part of the administrative branch and as such doesn't get to just make new shit up, that's what Congress is for.

Which is like, literally bullshit! Like, you know... total BS! I dunno, you know?

Six months ago TW was basically 100% in favor of net neutrality. Now that the Trump admin has espoused the idea of repealing it, everyone is like "wait no, net neutrality is stupid and two sides of the same coin." Is that how we form opinions now? If my party says it's cool then I must like it also?

What exactly is wrong with the status quo? Suppose it really is "right twix, left twix." If right twix is damn good then what is the point of upsetting the balance that has naturally evolved concurrantly with the evolution of technology? Why should we cede even more power and control to the telecom monopolies who everyone already unanimously hates?

If disparate/unfair bandwidth usage between respective corporations is the root of the problem, aren't there other ways to legislate a solution which isn't so implicitly detrimental to consumers?

That's all, just surprised by the shift in TW's attitude.

you think they flip a switch or something?

i think they are whores for hire

and that one lobbyist group or the other always wins

and unless we are a lobbyist group we lose (which we are not and we will be)

and will end up paying more for less regardless

until they screw themselves and something better comes out

so was the story of all telecoms and utilities

internet included

tbch, net neutrality never changed a thing. in the two years that it was put in place, it never did anything better. if things like that were happening with isps, they would be taken to court, just like they were before.

I don't think it was "put in place" two years ago. The Obama admin attempted to legislate its permanance, which is what the FCC is now attempting to repeal. Net neutrality has always been the standard, until now.

but i am a brony degenerate and am more afraid of possibly paying for fury porn than i am mass internet censorship and seeing a complete monopoly over what content can and can't be said on the internet i want for free

yeah you're right, your logic totally isn't confounding at all. i do like paying more for the same stuff that i always got for less. telecoms really deserve that profit from me rather than the other corporations who are actually abusing the unregulated bandwidth.
