Net Neutrality Equals Property Theft

Or so say participants at a conference sponsored by the Progress and Freedom Foundation.  The think tank is promoting its own bill to deregulate broadband and to strip the FCC of rule making ability that covers the area.  They have authored a piece of legislation called the Digital Age Communication Act to that effect.  It has been introduced by Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC).  This is in contrast to Senator Ron Wyden's (D-OR) bill that would do the exact opposite.

Infoworld has the story.  DeMint's bill is S. 2113.  Wyden's Bill is S. 2360  For an opinion piece that argues for Wyden's bill, see Oliver Rist's piece at InfoWorld.
