FCC's Net Neutrality rules now before the DC Circuit, with a lot at stake

The federal circuit in Washington DC has recently heard a case where telecomm companies appealed new rules from the Federal Communications Commission.  The federal circuit is often where issues of patent, trademark, and administrative regulation of technology goes.

Brian Fung has a story in the Washington Post Friday.

There is a still a concern that if the FCC “loses” (and doesn’t successfully appeal to the Supreme Court), technology companies could have a much bigger handle in controlling what users see, with fast lane rates, and possibly with reasonable access to amateur material.
