“An open Internet is essential to the American economy, and increasingly to our very way of life,” according to President Obama and it appears his perspective on the heavy hand of government regulation inserting itself into the last bastion of freedom and dynamism in the US economy, is how best to achieve “openness.” Having pressured FCC’s Tom Wheeler, the vote just came down: U.S. FCC APPROVES NET NEUTRALITY INTERNET RULES IN 3-2 VOTE. While potentially good for a consumer’s pocketbook, the handing over of “fair-use” decision to the government, as we previously noted, could be the first step on a slippery slope to increased censorship.
