Dysfunctional lawyers' paradise: ignore DC on net neutrality, the future is elsewhere

Several recent articles confirm that the Communications Act 1934 as amended will not be enough to arrive at a reasonable compromise over net neutrality - indeed Ford and Spiwak argue that reasonable itself is misdefined, Atkinson is sick of the personal vilification, and Verizon (together with EFF as blogged last week) argue for new legislation. That puts any sensible reform back to 2011-12, and given the ducking of hard issues in the National Broadband Plan, I think its safe to ignore regulatory outcomes in DC, even if the evidence provided is fascinating.
Pass along to Ottawa or Brussels or Tokyo, nothing to see here...
