Excellent debate on Net Neutrality at Center for American Progress, that covers a lot of background on the issue and how legislation could have helped the cause of open Internet.
In navigating the complex issue of â€œnet neutrality,â€ the government should protect consumersâ€™ rights amid a rapidly changing and dynamic Internet. Two experts agreed on that much Monday during a panel discussion hosted by the Center for American Progress, but they disagreed on how to do that without stifling innovation.
