F.C.C. Chairman Adds More Ambiguity to His Position on Network Neutrality

http://j.mp/1d76CPS  (New York Times)

    Do not be anxious about the uncertainty that seems to encompass those
    statements, he said. That anxiety stems from two concerns, he
    explained: "First, that network operators will take measures, mostly
    for economic reasons but perhaps also for ideological reasons, that
    will cut off or diminish the value of the Internet. Second, that the
    F.C.C. will intrude on the activities of network operators in ways
    that will damage them economically with injury to them and to their
    ability to offer more and improved service."  Neither will be allowed,
    Mr. Wheeler said. He plans to take a common law approach, based on the
    facts of any "material, not a trivial" individual case where a company
    has taken action or a consumer has a complaint.
