Chih-Liang Yeh, Graduate School of Social Informatics, Yuan Ze University has posted Does the Net Neutrality Really Preserve the Open Internet?: A Critique From the Implications of Broadband Policy.
ABSTRACT: This article aims to query the goal of FCC’s net neutrality rules to preserve the open Internet and address that the kernel of such a debate should focus on (or return to) the competition policy itself. Part II will depict the net neutrality development in the United States from the two-camp debate and a brief analysis of Comcast case. Part III will discuss how the FCC to codify such a vague term. Part IV will indicate the view of Europe regarding the issue of net neutrality and its new legal development. Part V will introduce a court case in Taiwan that might be involved with the discussion of net neutrality. Part VI will conclude some remarks regarding the real problem of a net neutrality regulation.
