Net neutrality petition gets a million signatures

The advocacy group Free Press, along with a broad coalition of organizations, has delivered the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) a petition with a million signatures asking to restore the federal protections for net neutrality that were struck down in court two weeks ago.

Net neutrality is a huge boon for commerce. But ISPs don't want to just be dumb pipes, so they fight it, in a bid to extract as many rents as possible. Let's hope the FCC has the guts to properly address the common carrier issue this time around.
