    the FCC got the chance to read it.. .and no doubt the administration ( who pushed it)

    the public?... nope.. it was top secret... Congress? nope, they were intentionally kept out of the loop.


    judges will get to read it now, though...it's heading off to court battles.... maybe the 3rd time will be a charm? ( I predict it will be shot down, but we'll see)

    So what do you think will be the concrete negative impact of this? And I don't mean vague bumper sticker answers like "less freedom" or "kittens will have teh sadz." Something tangible.

    Taxes, fees, restrictions. Potentially. I.e.: if the government believes it can remove the trademark for the Washington Redskins because it is deemed offensive, will they also try to ban discussion using the team name for the same reason?

    Then again, maybe nothing will happen.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    One thing we can observe from this is that certain folks will swallow for thier team no matter what. People who support this plan, are sheep.

    You'd think that someone who regularly posts on a political message board would understand the difference between a constitutional amendment and a federal regulation created by a body that is not directly responsible to the will of the people.

    So the solution to that potential problem is to regulate how much bandwidth an ISP can provide to the movie service?

    Here's the way this kind of thing works in the real world:
    1. ISP realizes that streaming functions are sucking up their bandwidth
    2. They charge more for customers who want the additional bandwidth
    3. They use the increased revenue to upgrade their infrastructure so that they can meet projected future needs

    The end result is that everybody wins.

    I haven't seen the new rules yet but based on what I'm reading and hearing the likely result will be that the ISP's will now have to limit the bandwidth dedicated to streaming activities until they can upgrade their infrastructure but that will also be limited because they will be restricted in what they can charge their customers. I'm also hearing that the FCC has opened up the option for municipalities to provide their own internet services which would then compete with private providers. The result of that will be a direct municipal tax for services that the resident may or may not use. Furthermore, if municipal ISP's become available it won't be too long until you see a federal ISP and the end result of that will be the death of the communications industry. You will, in effect, have avoided the specter of a "monopoly" of evil corporations for the true monopoly of a national communications cabal.
