While I agree that this new legislation would be detrimental, I don’t know that it would be as bad as everyone is saying. One of the examples used in the article is the power for AOL to start blocking MSN, etc. I don’t think that even if AOL had the power to do this, that they would. I mean, talk about alienating your user-base. I think people would just get fed up and vote with their wallets by choosing an ISP that doesn’t do such onerous things.
While I agree that this law should not be allowed to pass, I don’t know that it’s deserving of the “Chicken Little” syndrome that it seems to be getting.
And yes, we should kill them all and while we’re at it, the RIAA and MPAA too! 😈
