Major net neutrality victory
In this video Seder explains the 3-member panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals decision on net neutrality. They vote 2-1 to uphold the FCC rules put in place previously that says broadband is a public utility. The ISPs of course don't want fair and equal access to the internet because they can't make a killing. Never mind that they are already charging outrageously for their services. Net neutrality is central to the internet of things being a vehicle for developing the collaborative commons, the emerging and better socio-economic system. Btw, this victory was achieved by we the people responding in the millions to the FCC and our representatives, a huge accomplishment considering the money and power of the corporate ISPs.
