Internet & Networking When Google and Verizon unveiled their joint net neutrality policy proposal, in which the FCC would play a central role in governing the internet, I mentioned how the the FCC might not be the kind of institution you'd want to hand over control to over your pornography life line (also known as the internet). Over the past few days, the FCC pretty much reiterated just why they are no the right people to govern the web.

Well, most of the TLD infrastructure is located in USA.
Most of the worlds internet-traffic passes through the US.

If FCC is mandated to uphold net neutrality, how do one define which internet traffic FCC should govern and not?

The fear (IMHO) in us non-US-ians is that the US' net neutrality laws' effect would spread throughout the world 'cause of the largely centralized structure of the net's large hubs and TLD servers, both of which are by and large located in the US.
