Obama and Net Neutrality

Here are some updates on the state of Net Neutrality, the work and guarantee on internet access.

Bad News on Net Neutrality
The courts aren't friendly to the prospect and have opposed the FEC. Meaning the telecoms would keep control of who has access.

Obama Administration to break promise and cave to telecoms, leave the Internet unprotected?
It is not clear if Obama will continue to fight on this.

In early April, a federal court stripped the FCC of its power to regulate the Internet. Now it seems the Obama administration is considering doing nothing in response, giving power over our Internet to the greedy phone and cable companies.
