I received two e-mail today urging me to take action on a bill that deals with “net neutrality.” The funny thing is, they each had a very different take on it.
Here is the one supporting net neutrality (from Free Press):
The question before us is simple: Will the Internet remain in the hands of users and innovators? Or will a handful of telephone and cable companies determine which Web sites you see and which you don’t?
Here is the one against it (from Freedom Works):
Net neutrality legislation would give the federal government massive and unprecedented power over the Internet. If government control of the Internet unnerves you, either for economic or privacy reasons, you should be worried of net neutrality legislation.
It seems to boil down to corporate control vs. government control, or should I say, those who fear corporate control vs. those who fear government control.
What do you think about this notion of net neutrality?
