Internet & Networking Julius Genachowski, Chairman of the US Federal Communications Commission, today laid out plans to enforce net neutrality upon the internet. While the FCC is a US-only entity, fact of the matter is that "control" over the internet lies within the US, so whatever the FCC decides, it will affect the rest of the world.

As a libertarian, I oppose what the FCC is trying to do. Aside from ideological reasons, I fear there might be negative unintended consequences. For instance, what if the Internet does get overly congested like some claim it might. Neutrality laws might hinder the free market of ideas on how to deal with the issue best.
