    "Members of the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee voted 34 to 22 against a Democrat sponsored Internet neutrality amendment that would have prevented congress from abolishing Network Neutrality. If the act is removed by congress, it would allow the formation of a tiered Internet on which service providers would be able to ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“taxÃà ‚¢Ã¢ââ⠚¬Å¡Ã‚¬Ãâ ‚¬Å¡? content providers for fast delivery of data to customers."

    "Major telecom companies like AT&T and Verizon are spending millions of dollars to get Congress to change the rules to let them discriminate on the Internet ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬ ¡Ã‚¬? forcing Web sites to pay "protection money" to ensure their sites will work properly."

    How would the gutting of Network Neutrality affect you?

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Google usersÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠬šÂ¬?Another search engine could pay dominant Internet providers like AT&T to guarantee the competing search engine opens faster than Google on your computer.

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Innovators with the "next big idea"ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠬šÂ¬?Startups and entrepreneurs will be muscled out of the marketplace by big corporations that pay Internet providers for dominant placing on the Web. The little guy will be left in the "slow lane" with inferior Internet service, unable to compete.

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Ipod listenersÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢à €šÂ¬?A company like Comcast could slow access to iTunes, steering you to a higher-priced music service that it owned.

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Political groupsâà ƒÆ’¢â€šà ƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠂¬Å¡Ã‚¬?Political organizing could be slowed by a handful of dominant Internet providers who ask advocacy groups to pay "protection money" for their websites and online features to work correctly.

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Nonprofitsà¢ÃƒÆ’¢â€Š¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢à ¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬?A charity's website could open at snail-speed, and online contributions could grind to a halt, if nonprofits can't pay dominant Internet providers for access to "the fast lane" of Internet service.

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Online purchasersà¢ÃƒÆ’¢â€Š¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢à ¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬?Companies could pay Internet providers to guarantee their online sales process faster than competitors with lower pricesâà ƒÆ’¢â€šà ƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠂¬Å¡Ã‚¬?distorting your choice as a consumer.

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Parents and retireesâ â‚ 䉉 €šÂ¬?Your choices as a consumer could be controlled by your Internet provider, steering you to their preferred services for online banking, health care information, sending photos, planning vacations, etc.

    ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ Â¢ Bloggersâ â‚ 䉉 €šÂ¬?Costs will skyrocket to post and share video and audio clipsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠬šÂ¬?silencing citizen journalists and putting more power in the hands of a few corporate-owned media outlets.


    After gaining the ire of consumer advocacy and technology groups, the bill has become a hotbed of debate between Republican opposition and amendment supporting Democrats. The final vote represents a setback, but a fairly large shift towards the Democrat camp due in part to public outcry from Internet users.

    Well your right money isnt a problem for them. One thing the government HATES though is monoplies. If microsoft wanted to they can take out practically any company they want, but the laws are stopping them, mostly becase it would hurt the economy. Also not showing that website is a little thing, not showing several websites is a major problem that will cause lawsuits, which would be much worse.
