The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to approve it’s first internet access regulation known as net neutrality:

The rules have sparked intense debate and lobbying over whether such legislation is needed, and are likely to face a legal challenge. Genachowski has argued that Internet access rules would protect companies just starting out on the Web, as well as consumers who are increasingly relying on the Internet for news, entertainment and communications.

The agency’s two Republican members voted against the rules, showing support for Internet service providers who say the regulations will impede their ability to create new business plans to expand their broadband networks and boost speed.

Seton Motley the editor-in-chief of StopNetRegulation.org which is part of the Center for Individual Freedom produced a video explaining why we should be concerned.

HT: Big Government

Fortunately opponents are already at work to get this scaled back.  I don’t understand why I mean how could government regulation *ever* muck things up?  Lawsuits are already on the horizon and the internet is abuzz.
