Law in the Internet Society

There are battlefields around the globe for net-neutrality - let's see how this one shakes out.

Another way of thinking about this would be that "who controls the switches" is, as I suggested in class, the essence of most political questions about and in relation to the Net. "Network neutrality" is a phrase generally, but mostly non-specifically, denoting limitations on the control exercised by TSPs and other large-scale routing providers, including the platform companies. So, unfortunately, all controversies about the power of "telecommunications service providers" to control endpoint behavior as well as collect it can be---and often are---phrased in terms of "network neutrality," thus making it hard to force the regulated parties to discuss the specifics of the practices to be regulated or prohibited.
