Newsmax... Regulating the Internet

Copyrighted brief from Newsmax…
Washington Times: Internet Freedom to Be Lost
Sunday, 05 Dec 2010

The Federal Communications Commission is making plans to regulate the Internet, promising that the new rules will "preserve the freedom and openness of the Internet."
FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski will reveal the proposed rules On Dec. 21, but the Washington Times  says "it's not clear under what law Mr. Genachowski thinks he can stick his nose into the businesses that comprise the Internet."
In an editorial headlined "Wave Goodbye to Internet Freedom," the Times states: "Freedom and openness should continue to be the governing principles of the Internet. That's why Mr. Genachowski's proposal should be rejected and Congress should make it even more clear that the FCC should stop trying to expand its regulatory empire."
