What is net neutrality? What is at stake and why you should care

What is net neutrality? What is at stake and why you should care | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
President Obama trotted out a plan for FCC regulation of ISPs on Monday to a roughly equal mixture of fanfare and derision.

I've been watching the discussions fly around the internet for days now and have found that there's a lot of misunderstandings about what, exactly, the fight is about.

Net Neutrality Emails Reveal a Cozy 'Social Network' Between the FCC and Telecoms | VICE News

Net Neutrality Emails Reveal a Cozy 'Social Network' Between the FCC and Telecoms | VICE News | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Documents obtained by VICE News shed light on the relationship between government regulators and the telecoms they're regulating amid the net neutrality debate.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

The accusations are usually leveled because of the revolving door that has seen FCC officials leave the agency to work as lobbyists for telecom companies, and lobbyists for telecom companies leave to work for the FCC.

Internal FCC documents obtained by VICE News in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request we filed last April sheds a little more light on the revolving door and the cozy relationship between the regulators and the industry it oversees.
