Internet & Networking So, while The Netherlands just adopted net neutrality, the US is now nearing a comprehensive agreement on a piracy crackdown system. It will include throttling internet speeds, limiting access to e.g. only the top 200 websites, and forced participation in an educational program on copyright. The system has been drafted by the White House, big content, and ISPs. I guess this is the final nail in the coffin for net neutrality in the land of the 'free'.

Meh, donĀ“t feel that bad... They rest of the 'civilized' world will follow suit soon enough... under some 'FACKTA', 'Cash Cow Protection Act' or similar 'in-your-best-interest' kind of name...
