    U.S. appeals court kills net neutrality [W:23]

    Any semblance of net neutrality in the United States is as good as dead. The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on Tuesday struck down the Federal Communications Commissionís 2010 order that imposed network neutrality regulations on wireline broadband services. The ruling is a major victory for telecom and cable companies who have fought all net neutrality restrictions vociferously for years.

    Again, I have absolutely no problem with private censorship. There is no "right" to be heard.

    Why do you oppose government censorship but have no problem with private censorship? Censorship is censorship and if it infringes on my right to free speech I have the right to protest the censorship.

    not good.

    Appeals court strikes down FCC's net neutrality rules | PCWorld

    you had better hope that the small sites that you enjoy have unlimited cash to make sure that their data is treated preferentially. also, the way i'm reading it, ISPs could block or slow any data that they want.

    well, yeah, no ****, Sherlock. way to go. ****heads.

    Because the state has a state granted monopoly on legal force. Any individual can tell a censoring company to walk, I do not want to interact with you anymore, but they cannot tell the government that.

    Free speech has nothing to do with private entities or private people, it has only to do with the government suppressing speech.

    You think that "right" exists?
