This is worth reading... not sure why this would be bad.... sounds like the middle men selling video content might not get to be so rich but it sounds like the rest of us would have better options including independent film makers that will continue to be able to compete with net neutrality still in place. As far as I can tell the last minute amendment was not attached though as I read over what was passed.... but it is still good to think about this idea

Call your ISP and tell them what you think for one and representatives too.... Learn the issue fully from both sides before you do that and plan on reoccurring battles because power and wealth are a thing ISPs and these officials will never stop seeking full control
