Which is precisely why you need the FCC to lobby on your behalf. Some people naively assume that capitalism works and actually keeps corporations in check. In order for corporations to be kept in check, people have to actually be smart enough to understand the issue, which immediately eliminates 2/3rds of the population. THEN people have to actually give a poo, which probably eliminates another 2/3rds of that existing 1/3rds.

Just stow the Anti-Govt chatter and be HAPPY that the Govt is actually fighting for something that will benefit you instead of rolling over to Corporate interests.

Well said sir.

Sadly the government can hardly be considered a white knight, and deserve only slightly less mistrust than the mega-corporations.

Anyway if anyone actually read this article it really isn't saying much. it just says they stopped them from suing till the laws official, not that they stopped them from suing outright. So basically this is a pointless thread until their lawsuit gets the smack down, assuming it does.

It's a jockeying for position. These laws are somewhat to set it so that no one else has legal precedent of net control.

I don't know which is better, the government or mega-corps having the power, but if you think it's 'conspiracy theory', you haven't been around long enough or you're likely already part of the herd.

Love how they the courts want the laws set in stone before the Corps can continue the suit. Once they're set, they're not nearly as easy to change.
