For net neutrality, all roads head to courts

US FCC set to reverse net neutrality rules

"[The] Internet Association is now weighing our legal options in a lawsuit against today's Order, and remains open to Congress enshrining strong, enforceable net neutrality protections into law", the group's president, Michael Beckerman, said in a statement. As Pai said before today's vote, "It is time for the Internet, once again, to be driven by engineers and entrepreneurs and consumers rather than lawyers, accountants and bureaucrats".

But 3,000 miles away, in California, State Senator Scott Wiener announced plans to buck the FCC's decision by introducing California's own net neutrality rules. When Flake's resolution passed Congress and was signed by President Trump in April, it essentially told the FCC to stop requiring internet providers to get your consent before they sold your personal information, including browsing history and app usage data.

The broadband industry has promised that the internet experience for the public isn't going to change. "We are restoring the light-touch framework that has governed the internet for most of its existence".

According to a recent poll from the University of Maryland, 83 percent of voters supported the existing net neutrality laws. They should watch for changes in terms of service and privacy policy, and file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission when they consider the behavior either deceptive or unfair.

Bon Jovi finally inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Nina Simone has been eligible since 1986, but this marks the first year she has been nominated. Well, we've been through it twice already, Cars drummer Greg Robinson tells Rolling Stone .

Angelo Zino, an analyst at CFRA Research, said he expects AT&T and Verizon to be the biggest beneficiaries because the two internet giants can now give priority to the movies, TV shows and other videos or music they provide to viewers.

"The FCC just gave Big Telecom an early Christmas present, by giving internet service providers yet another way to put corporate profits over consumers", said Mr. Schneiderman in a statement. That could hurt rivals such as Sling TV, Amazon, YouTube or startups yet to be born. So basically, if your provider offers a streaming service and you use Netflix, they can slow your shit down to a crawl. "The legend of a cable company breaking the internet ... isn't reality", he said. For example this means not blocking or slowing down traffic to companies the ISP may not like, making web pages load slower.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai says his plan eliminates unnecessary regulation that stood in the way of connecting more Americans to the internet.

Wiener is not the only one who wants to reinstate net neutrality. Now he has succeeded in overturning the hard-fought rules, which came after years of legislative and legal battles.

Rumour Mongering: Liverpool Back In For Thomas Lemar
The youngster scored 14 goals in 55 appearances for Monaco last season, but has only managed to find the net once so far this season.

Repeal advocates have long argued that higher profits will lead broadband providers to invest more in infrastructure, which could make high-speed internet more widely available in underserved places, like rural America (though some experts say net neutralitys effects on infrastructure investment is an open question). "Americans deserve a fair and open internet". A curious position for Republicans to support, one might think; but the conservative analysis proceeds from the assumption, of course, that consumers - the market - are in a better position than regulators to determine what Internet services should cost.

Now Republicans are the majority on the commission.

But Michael O'Rielly, a Republican commissioner appointed by Obama, called the FCC's approach a "well-reasoned and soundly justified order".

That growing public movement suggests that the FCC vote will not be the end of the issue. The FCCs vote on net neutrality yesterday was, in its own way, a very important vote.

Big shake up in golf rule violations
USGA Senior Director of Rules of Golf Thomas Pagel said the new policy would come into effect from January 1 and require tournaments to assign an official to watch each broadcast.

"The internet wasn't broken in 2015", Pai argued in his remarks made on Thursday. He said 2 million comments were submitted under stolen identities, including those of children and dead people.
