Net neutrality: special issue compared Canadian experience to US, Europe, Japan

I warmly recommend the Global Media Journal Issue 3 number 1 - an entire issue devoted to country comparison's on net neutrality policy now that we have emerged from the phoney (sic) war of 2006-8 (at least outside the US, where they have done things in reverse).
Greg Taylor gives a thorough and thoroughly fair review of my book, and his two particular criticisms, that it is Euro-centric and that it is perhaps too optimistic about the reversal of neo-liberalism in US telecoms policy, are those that I fully accept. Recall the book was written in the bright Obama dawn of early 2009, not the appalled, apocalyptic and rotten summer of Beckian doom.
