Net Neutrality in Trouble

Not good:
A US appeals court dealt a major setback on Tuesday to the efforts of US goverment regulators to force Internet service providers to treat all Web traffic equally.

The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of broadband provider Comcast Corp. in a case seen as a test of the authority of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to enforce "net neutrality."

Net neutrality is the principle that ISPs provide the same speed and level of service to all Web users, regardless of size.
