Reason TV on Net Neutrality Regulation

Good new video up over at ReasonTV about the perils of Net Neutrality regulation. Worth watching:

    Good video and Michael Moynihan logical concludes that exploring regulation becomes an option should the free-market fail. No problem there. But there is a growing threat, the potential that ISP “filter” content.

    The threat of an unregulated internet does not just come from Al Gore. The demands for ISP filtering is a reflection of corporate America buying favorable legislation from Congress that will interfere with the concept of net-neutrality. If one is against government regulation that interferes with net-neutrality, I would also expect video from Reason TV posts berating this type of onerous legislation too.

    Until ISPs start blocking encrypted content, I'm not too worried about ISP filtering. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of services around the globe which allow users to transmit data protected by end-to-end encryption. There's no way to tell what's inside an encrypted packet!

    I need to clarify that the Register story I cited was published in February 2009, a year ago. I do not what what became of the legislation proposed by Dianne Feinstein.
