Internet Trouble effects everyone

We are facing a serious problem and a threat to how the internet works.

With headlines like this how long will it be before we see toll booths erected online….

You might get a notice on your computer, like the old days of Cell phone towers, (remember back then when you got on some other network you would have to pay like $2.00 per minute) Amazing but true.

Now we are facing something very nearly the same, blocking of internet traffic.

In vengeful move, CBS blocks web episodes for

Time Warner Cable internet subscribers

You know what I really wonder if Cable is all that great these days, they charge a very high price, but then play games with your ability to access the internet.

So have we finally come to the end of the rain bow, where once you were free to do as you pleased with your own computer, you pay to buy the computer you pay to connect your computer to the electrical power, you pay a company to provide you with internet service.

But when it comes right down to it, do you get what you pay for?

When a company decides what you can and cannot see online does that mean that soon we will have some people that say “hey you cant watch the nature channel because we have an interest in its competitor and we don’t like that”

What about commercials, will some people not be able to advertise online if someone has an objection to that?

You see it never ends well for anyone because sooner or later they get around to something that you care about.

We think that when we purchase a service we should get that service silly us, it would be funny if it were on TV, but its not is it.

Well apparently the idea of unequal protection, is not a problem in Washington as the FTC mulls the idea of creating guides that only would allegedly be enforced on the internet creating an unequal burden on advertisers who advertise online as opposed to broadcast advertising.

This would create a chilling effect on the NASDAQ and the internet for many small business owners who have just now begun to advertise online.

Stop playing politics with the lives of Americans.

Stop playing politics with small business.

Stop playing politics with policies that are not equally protective of
all consumers.

Un Equal protection, under the law is that the way that Washington prefers to do things these days?

You just have to scratch your head and wonder about all the strange goings on in the minds of those odd people.

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday detailed plans for its so-called “third way” to reclassify broadband service as a telecommunications service, which would help the agency reassert its authority for regulating the Internet, after it lost an important legal battle last month.

The purpose of the statement is to put the agency on stronger legal footing after a federal appeals court ruled last year

that the FCC had no legal authority to punish Comcast for slowing down BitTorrent traffic on its network. The FCC officially censured Comcast for violating its Net neutrality principles.

The court decision has called into question the FCC’s authority for any regulation of the Internet, especially new regulation the agency is forming to deal with Net neutrality–the broad question of whether rules are needed to prevent lopsided treatment for certain Web sites or types of Internet traffic. The chairman’s statement, which asks for input from the public and the industry in determining how traffic should be reclassified, is a step toward making the FCC’s legal status in regulating broadband services more certain.

 

There are a lot of other things that could be much more important than trying to take control over the internet one has to question the intent of that issue.

So what is going on with this new attempt to apply a different set of rules for online advertisers than they do for off line advertisers?
