Internet Grab Eminent: Obama/FCC After Control World Wide Web. Don’t Let Their Lies Fool You…This is Dangerous

Obama Plans Internet Grab: FCC to Embrace 'Net Neutrality':

“Since the Internet took root as a mass communications phenomenon in the mid 1990s, a quiet war has raged in Washington over the extent to which the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) would regulate the new medium.

Until, now the Internet has been largely self-regulated, and the FCC has taken a hands-off approach.

But that could change dramatically soon if the Obama administration has its way.

During the weekend, press reports revealed a stunning development: The Obama administration will announce Monday that the FCC would propose new rules to embrace what it calls ‘Net Neutrality.’”Conservatives see Net Neutrality as a power grab that will benefit big Internet players such as Amazon and Google while stifling smaller competitors.

The libertarian CATO Institute, in a 2004 policy analysis concluded: “The regulatory regime envisioned by Net Neutrality mandates would also open the door to a great deal of potential ‘gaming’ of the regulatory system and allow firms to use the regulatory system to hobble competitors. Worse yet, it would encourage more FCC regulation of the Internet and broadband markets in general.”

Democrats in Congress have pushed for such controls in the past without success. In 2006 House Democrats offered an amendment to make Net Neutrality law, but the motion failed.

At the time Republicans warned of efforts to control the Internet.

Stringing and Strowing says:

Net Neutrality is the over reach of government into the World Wide Web. The system is not broke. It does not need fixing. This is the attempt of Obama administration to kowtow to big liberal players like Google and Yahoo and will result in the reduction of competitiveness and ultimate control of the net by government bureaucrats.
