Without the Net Neutrality we have now, there's no guarantee that all content will continue to get the same fair shake. Are you comfortable with handing over to Big Media the power to decide whether some communications are more equal than others?
White House silence on net neutrality doesn't mean consent with Google -- it means the ball is in the FCC's court. And it means the FCC should do what every net neutrality advocate in the nation is saying.
Internet service providers need only one loophole to really kill an open Internet. Maybe the most ridiculous one is the liability limit. The maximum fine for a violation that could make a company billions is $2 million dollars.
The Google-Verizon deal proves that network neutrality rules are necessary. And it proves that the FCC's negotiation-talks receive little respect from the corporations engaged in them (maybe for good reason).
