While minority adoption was the big issue yesterday as it relates to our broadband priorities, Net neutrality took center stage today at an event sponsored by the Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law titled “Implementing the National Broadband Plan: Perspective from Government, Industry and Consumers.”
The lunch session featured a discussion between Adam Thierer, President of the Progress and Freedom Foundation, and Ben Scott, Policy Director at Free Press, both leading (and effective) voices in the debate over whether or not the government should regulate the Internet. Neither one took long to get into the crux of their arguments. Thierer effectively broke down what he described as the “Five Cases Against Net Neutrality,” that included legal, economic, engineering, practical, and philosophical arguments.
To see Thierer describe these five cases in more detail, click on his interview with NextGenWeb following the debate.
