In Net Neutrality Push, Internet Giants on the Sidelines

In Net Neutrality Push, Internet Giants on the Sidelines | Technology | Scoop.it
Companies like Facebook and Google have stayed away from mobilizing their users to support an issue that primarily affects smaller Internet upstarts.
Rene Guitart's insight:

"In another era, the White House’s position might have elicited squeals of joy from the technology giants, which have long maintained that the future of innovation online depends on such strict net neutrality rules. But Google, which was once the industry’s most ardent supporter of net neutrality, and Facebook, which could mobilize millions of supporters through its service, both declined to comment on Mr. Obama’s position.

Instead, they joined a supportive statement put out by the Internet Association, a trade group that represents a coalition of technology companies, including Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, Twitter and PayPal.

The muted response was not surprising. Since January, when a federal appeals court threw out the Federal Communications Commission’s rules on net neutrality, broadband companies like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T have mounted a full-court public and legislative fight against any new round of regulations that would curb how they manage their networks. Their rival giants in the tech industry haven’t put up much of a fight."

Critical networks in US, 15 other nations, completely owned, possibly by Iran | Technology | Scoop.it
"Iran's cyber sophistication has grown rapidly since the dawn of Stuxnet and they have used hard dollars combined with national pride to help build their cyber army," the Cylance report stated. "Few doubt their commitment as a government and nation state to funding and recruiting cyber warriors to infiltrate and damage their enemies. And it has been commonly postulated that almost all activity since 2010 coming out of Iran is associated with retaliation for Stuxnet/Duqu/Flame, which seems natural given the severity of the impact."
