This panel examines the recent developments around net neutrality, one of the more misunderstood principles among the crowd of odd phrasings generated within contemporary telecommunications practice and policy. The panel will (1) present the concrete info about net neutrality – what it is and isn’t, and the circumstances that generated the concept to begin with; (2) summarize FCC Commissioner Genachowski’s position, and speculate on why the FCC took the route it did in the wake of the Comcast court decision in 2010 (which blew apart the Commission’s de facto assertion of authority over how industries could manage Internet networks); (3) assess the pros and cons of the FCC approach and also comment on the misinformation that has circulated. The panel will help you figure out whether and why you should care about this policy.
